“It's like watching someone else take your wife out on a date. It's weird,” Grant told his radio co-hosts Ed Kavalee and Ash London of watching his job be taken from him.
“It's like handing your partner over for someone else to have a turn with.”
His shocking comments come just weeks after Grant was hospitalised when he tore his L1 disc while planting trees on his farm.
"I was down the paddock, mate, with my Akubra on, my flannos, just slamming away on a star picket with a huge sledgehammer and twang -away it went," Grant told his radio co-hosts at the time.
Now, he must endure the long road to recovery, which doctors tell him could take from as little as six weeks to as long as six months.
