Jackie ‘O’ Henderson has finally addressed rumors that she had an affair with former Gladiators star Vulcan.
Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Friday morning, the 48-year-old radio queen made it clear that the couple had “hooked up.”
“I had to google what Vulcan looked like and boy, I think I’d remember if I went on a date with Vulcan,” he said.
“I definitely hadn’t, I didn’t even know Vulcan, I never did.”
Jackie’s co-host on radio, Kyle Sandilands, corrected her by clarifying, “We’ve had him on the show twice.”

No, we haven’t.
‘If we have.’
‘We have? Are you sure?’ Jackie asked, before remembering.
‘No, no, I’ve never had anything, nothing with Vulcan. I don’t know him,” he added.
The rumor came from Melbourne’s KIIS FM show with Jase and Lauren, so Kyle and Jackie O thought it would be a good idea to invite host Jason Hawkins on the show to find out where he heard it from.
Jason told the Sydney hosts that he was “pretty sure” that Kyle had spread the rumor, and they phoned Vulcan, whose real name is John Seru.
‘Yeah, these Melbourne people really have no idea?’ Vulcan joked.
The Fijian-born fitness enthusiast was recruited for seasons seven and eight of the British version of the show. The former bodybuilder and wrestler did not disappoint, showcasing his skills on the Duel platform and in the Gauntlet.
Vulcan, whose real name is John Seru, now owns a wrestling school, fitness shop, and gym in Sydney.

John now owns a wrestling school, fitness shop and fitness center that he has been running for 18 years in Sydney with his family, who previously enjoyed success as an actor.
Rumors stem from the announcement that Gladiators will return to Australian television screens.
The high-octane show, which became popular in 1995 and 1996, will be rebooted when filming begins in September and October.
According to a TV Blackbox report on Wednesday, the series will not air on Sevens, as has been the case before.
The report went on to say that Gladiators could possibly find a home in Ten, but that hasn’t been confirmed by the network.

The talent and cast members for the revived series have yet to be announced.
In addition to the Australian show, the BBC is also planning a reboot for UK fans of the competitive series.
The show was rebooted in 2008, but failed to find a steady audience.
The show was hosted by Tom Williams and Zoe Naylor.
The show was filmed at The Dome at the Sydney Showground with challengers competing for $50,000 and a Subaru Forester.
Some of the challenges in the reboot included Atlasphere, Duel, Gauntlet, Hang Tough, and Hit and Run.
The show featured several household names including Zac Kozyrski as ‘Hunter’ and Jackson Mullane as ‘Outlaw’.
Female gladiators included Tiffiny Hall as ‘Angel’ and Olympian Tatiana Grigorieva as ‘Olympia’ on the show.
