He’s notoriously candid about his struggle to maintain a healthy weight, but it seems as though Kyle Sandilands’ party lifestyle has well and truly caught up with him.
Speaking to Hot Seat host Eddie McGuire on his radio show this morning, the shock jock admitted that he’d tipped the scales at 135 kilograms.
“I’m 125 kilos Eddie – help me,” he begged.
The 52-year-old media veteran then went on to explain that he’d lost 20kgs in two weeks by drinking just three cups of Chinese herb tonic a day.
“It does take a bit of mental strength to get through, but I found it relatively easy going,” he said.
“You have the herbs but you also go and get acupuncture and a massage for the first couple weeks and get weighed every day, so that gets you a bit honest.”
But while McGuire confessed he had ‘probably’ put on a kilo or two each year, Sandilands’ admission was much more shocking.
“You reckon I put on five [kilos] a year Jackie?” he quizzed his co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson.
“Would be, yep,” she said, nodding in agreement.
He simply replied: “Jesus.”
This isn’t the first time Henderson has publicly spoken about her colleague’s health issues.
When reading an open letter dedicated to Sandilands on air in 2016, the 41-year-old mum joked: “I’m not sure what’s growing quicker, my friendship and trust with you or your waistline.”
