Tommy Little's relationship confession amid Carrie Bickmore dating rumours
The comedian opened up about his dating life live on-air.
Rumours have been swirling for months that Tommy Little is now dating his radio co-host Carrie Bickmore following her split from long-time partner Chris Walker in January.
The 38-year-old comedian seemingly addressed the speculation during an appearance on 2DAY FM’s Hughesy, Ed & Erin on Thursday morning and made a surprising relationship confession live on-air.
Tommy spoke openly about his history with online dating and revealed he’s currently on only one dating app after being “kicked off all the others”.
“I didn’t do anything bad, people just report me as fake,” he explained. “So they see my profile pop up and then I get all these messages saying, ‘Hey, someone’s using your pictures’.
“And I just can’t keep telling the apps that it’s me because it’s so desperate going, ‘Hey Tinder, that’s actually me’.”

When host Erin Molan asked Tommy if he is currently single, he replied, “Yeah, of course”.
He went on to share that he’s currently on the exclusive ‘celebrity’ dating app Raya, which Erin admitted she has been “rejected” from in the past.
“I can recommend you,” he told her.
Rumours first emerged in March that Tommy, who broke up with his girlfriend Natalia Kyriacou in 2021, had grown closer to Carrie Bickmore following her split from her partner of 11 years, Chris Walker.
Daily Mail reported that Tommy has been “a shoulder to cry on” for the mother-of-three and “rushed” to her side when she announced the news at the start of the year.
Carrie’s ex Chris seemingly responded to the rumours in March when he shared a strange photo from 2018 on Instagram of Tommy posing in a family photo while Carrie was pregnant with her third child Adelaide, who is now four.

In the tongue-in-cheek snap, Carrie's two older children, Ollie and Evie, stand in front of Carrie and Chris, whose hands are on Carrie's baby bump, with Tommy awkwardly standing behind him holding his behind.
The photo was organised for UNICEF Australia's Save a Newborn Appeal, with the image being captioned at the time: “This is what happens when you let Tommy organise a beautiful photo shoot to celebrate Carrie's pregnancy.”
Chris didn't caption the bizarre post and swiftly deleted it just six hours later, which led fans to question the intentions behind it.
