Kyle & Jackie O return with Sophie and Stu exclusive

Former Assistant Editor

Australian Radio Network‘s Sydney breakfast untouchables Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson returned to the air this morning, one week after the first rating period for 2018 officially began.

In what will come as a shock to nobody at all, they picked up exactly where they left off in 2017.

In a sign that they’ve lost none of the confidence that saw them top the 2018 Sydney Breakfast standings, their first break went for eight full minutes, the first couple of which you can hear below.

Unsurprisingly the show was full of the things that Kyle and Jackie O have built their brand around, including plenty of celebrity gossip and signatures raves, and a good old prank call.

They discussed in detail the breakup of Bachelorette couple Sophie Monk and Stu Laundy at length.

The intense climax of the show came when they spoke to Stu live on-air to see how he was, before Sophie called in – which was when things began to get very awkward.

Kyle, attempting to play mediator and matchmaker, repeatedly asked whether the reality couple might get back together and if either of them had had sex with anyone else since they broke up.

We should expect the duo to continue to build their show around big-ticket celebrities and prizes, with an interview with Aussie Oscar-nominee Margot Robbie featuring today, and a chat with Zac Efron set to air on Tuesday.

Despite KIIS 106.5 teasing an interview with Will Smith recently, no such chat came about this morning, with word that it may be airing this Friday.

They also confirmed that they’d be giving away diamonds for Valentine’s Day, which had been teased across KIIS 106.5, and Kyle & Jackie O’s socials last week.

As always, they presented several strong talkback topics, with their loyal and passionate listeners engaged from the get-go, including a funny segment on whether smoking in the shower is taboo or not.

Kyle and Jackie O ended 2017 with a record-breaking 12.1% share of the Sydney FM breakfast audience, and will be looking to continue their form from 6am – 9:30am weekdays on KIIS 106.5.
