Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson engage in vicious on-air brawl as tensions rise over radio segments: ‘You can suck it’
Radio stars Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson battled on air Wednesday over whether or not to accept a late answer in a quiz.
The pair were interviewing a contestant during a Tradie vs Lady segment and a tough question led them to answer correctly – one second after the clock ticked.
Jackie, 48, started cheering them on by answering correctly, but Kyle bluntly told her he didn’t accept the late reply.
‘Ah, that sucks**k. They understand, said an excited Jackie O.
‘No. You can suck dick because it was after the clock, way after. There are no dots. We’re not married, you’re not going to win here, Kyle retorted.

The pair then found themselves at an impasse, with both refusing to concede their position.
The fight comes after Kyle hinted he would be leaving KIIS FM after nine years to join rival network 2Day FM.
In June, he told co-host Jackie O, 48, paparazzi asked him about the rumors as he returned to Sydney from his European honeymoon.
Kyle hinted that he was open to a potential move if presented with an attractive offer, asking Jackie, “What’s my motto?”
“Where there is a crate, there is a way,” she replied.

Kyle confirmed she was right and joked that it was also Jackie’s motto.
According to the Australian Financial Review, the duo’s former network SCA have been “quite aggressive” in pursuing the duo as their current deal with KIIS FM and ARN comes to an end in 2024.
“It’s like radio sports rights. It’s very likely that this will end up being the biggest talent media deal ever,” a network insider said.
‘Ah, that sucks**k. They get the point,” an excited Jackie O said.
Ciaran Davis, CEO and Managing Director of ARN Media, told Daily Mail Australia: “We don’t view contract negotiations as a one-time exercise.”
An SCA spokesman declined to comment on the speculation when contacted by Daily Mail Australia.
The Kyle and Jackie O Show originally aired on 2Day FM from January 2005 to December 2013, and moved to its current network KIIS FM in January 2014.
