Jackie O has reportedly walked out on breakfast radio co-host Kyle Sandilands - a bust up that has left the media wondering if cracks are starting to appear in the on-air partnership which helped launch Australian Radio Network's new station Kiis 1065 earlier this year.
Cracks appear to be emerging in the breakfast show pairing of Kyle Sandilands and Jackie Henderson, after Henderson apparently walked out on Sandilands during this morning’s broadcast.
The juvenile spat between the two erupted after Henderson, known to Kiis 1065 listeners as Jackie O, accused Sandilands of taking too many sick days.
“If you vomited in the car I don’t think you’d come to work either,” protested Sandilands, before asking Henderson if she had “got the shits”.
“You’re always sick on a Friday,” she responded. “I’m putting it out there. It leaves me high and dry on the air.”
“You’re very rude,” retorted Sandilands, before saying: “I just don’t care what you think.”
Shortly afterwards, it appeared Henderson had left the studio, leaving Sandilands to finish the show alone.
