Kyle Sandilands returned to the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Thursday morning, apologising for his "embarrassing" on-air meltdown, which saw him storm out of the studio on Wednesday.
The radio shock jock lost his temper following a discussion about former NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian's leaked texts calling Prime Minister Scott Morrison a "complete psycho" and a "fraud", before sensationally walking off the radio show after hurling insults at his co-host Jackie O Henderson and newsreader Brooklyn Ross.
"Hello Kyle. Good to have you back. How are you feeling today?" Jackie O asked.
"Are you OK over there? You look like you’re going to cry," she added, before Kyle apologised to his co-host for calling her an “idiot", revealing he’d been "out of my mind" with anger when he left the building the previous day.
"Oh, it’s a bit embarrassing, yesterday’s carry-on," Kyle said.
"I felt very justified, but I did get my back up a bit – but that happens among friends."
He also said the attention his furious outburst got made him "look stupid".
"I was reading an article yesterday, and it said I went on a 12-minute meltdown. Was it 12 minutes? Of me continually screaming and carrying on?" he asked.
Kyle became enraged after newsreader Brooklyn and Jackie O continued to discuss the newsworthiness of the Scott Morrison text scandal.
"This is not real news. Don’t make up fictitious bulls**t drama over nothing.... I’m angry. This is the way the world has been ruined – by d***heads on the news turning these things into bulls**t moments," he said, before hurling insults at his colleagues.
"You just show how dumb you all are, you idiots," Kyle said.
“Oh my god, what’s up with you this morning?” Jackie O questioned.
Things escalated when Brooklyn again tried to offer his opinion, with Kyle blasting the journalist: "Just turn your mic off ***. You’re finished! Get out!"
“Are you serious? I don’t understand," a clearly shocked Jackie O said.
“I’m going home, F**K you. Do the show by yourself, what a f**king show it’ll be,” Kyle concluded, storming out of the studio.
