British radio personality Christian O’Connell has revealed his worst celebrity interviews ever – and his answers may surprise you.
The 45-year-old, who now fronts his own show on Melbourne’s GOLD104.3 FM, has met some of Hollywood’s biggest stars during his ten years in the business.
Speaking to News.com.au on Friday, Christian describes one encounter as ‘butt-clenchingly awful’.
From a Hollywood A-Lister, an eighties movie icon and a former Tinseltown tough guy: Can you guess radio host Christian O’Connell’s worst celebrity interviews? (Christian is pictured)
Christian said his chat with Steve Seagal was the ‘worst’.
‘Oh my god, that was the worst interview I ever did,’ he revealed.
The host admitted his assistant came up with bogus questions and admitted he should have done research himself.

‘The whole interview, he just wasn’t up for it,’ Christian said.
‘The first question I asked was, “is it true you’ve got an aftershave coming out called The Scent of Action?” and he literally went berserk.’
The chat was so bad, Christian introduced the segment on his Absolute Radio show as ‘butt-clenchingly awful.’
The radio star then claimed his interview with eighties icon Christopher Lloyd will ‘haunt’ him.

The actor who played Doc Brown in the Back to the Future franchise, was furious when he realised Christian had failed to see the movie he was promoting.
‘He said to me, “you’ve obviously not watched it,” Christian said.
‘The rest of the half an hour was awful, just awful.’
Anticipating A-Lister Bruce Willis to be a difficult interviewee, Christian was pleasantly surprised.
‘Good fun!’ Christian anticipated a frosty response from Bruce Willis (pictured) but after confronting the Die-Hard about his grumpiness, the interview went really well
Representatives had warned the DJ that the Die Hard star was in a bad mood.
So instead of tip-toeing around the situation, he confronted the actor – and the reaction was unexpected.
‘He laughed a bit and said, “who told you I was in a bad mood?” And I said “they did out there. They’re terrified of you.” He started to laugh.’
Christian added: ‘Bruce Willis could have been terrible but it ended up being good fun.’
