Things got a little risqué for morning television today thanks to a slip of the tongue by Sonia Kruger.

WATCH: Sonia Kruger makes disgusting confession during Today Extra

Appearing on Channel Seven’s The Morning Show to promote the network’s new show Holey Moley, the 55-year-old accidentally made the gaffe when trying to describe her sister’s hair-dressing skills.

During the X-rated mistake, Sonia inadvertently used the word “job” when attempting to refer to a “blow dry” – a gaffe that left hosts Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies in hysterics.

“My sister’s a hairdresser, so if you’re looking for a good blow j*b… blow wave,” Sonia said, before quickly trying to backtrack to correct herself.

Affable host Larry managed to see the funny side of things, commenting, “Lucky we’re not live, they’ll probably cut that out!”

He then joked: “I tell you what. Your sister’s just been booked out for months!”

Sonia has always been close with her older sister Debra and the siblings’ age gap is just 13 months.

In an interview with Nine Honey in 2017, Sonia admitted that Debra was always the “cooler” sister when they were growing up.

“She was kind of the cool kid at school, and I was the nerdy ballroom dancer who was kind of embarrassing,” Sonia said.

“I was into musical theatre and all the things. She was into watching Countdown, she had the cool kind of surfy vibe going on, and I was just this big dork next to her.”

Meanwhile, since making the switch from Channel Nine to Channel Seven, Sonia’s work load is fuller than ever.

As well as hosting The Voice and Big Brother, Sonia will be at the helm of new reality show Holey Moley.

She will team up with sports presenter Matt Shirvington, golfing legend Greg Norman and US comedian and actor Rob Riggle for the “extreme mini golf competition series”.

The new show is already a hit in the US and will see mini-golf lovers tackle a larger-than-life obstacle mini golf course in the hopes of winning an eye-watering $100,000 and the coveted Holey Moley plaid jacket.
