When Pete asked, ‘What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear, “thongs”‘, Kyle said: ‘Yuck. Disgusting. You mean the ones you wear on your feet?’

When Pete answered yes, Kyle spat: ‘Would never wear them. They’re welfare shoes.’

Kyle’s remarks are bound to surprise some fans, who consider the radio star to be something of a larrikin, given his brash on-air manner and often colourful language.

‘King’ Kyle’s remarks come just days after it was revealed he is purchasing a new $1.3 million Rolls Royce.

On Monday, the KIIS FM star was seen cruising around Sydney in the luxurious vehicle, reportedly on loan from a Rolls Royce dealer in Sydney.

According to the Daily Telegraph, the radio star has a collection of 10 luxurious vehicles, including a number of European sports cars. 

Starting off his collection is his Ferrari 458 Italia, which has been spotted at his home in St. Ives on several occasions. 

The vehicle goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds.
