Karl Stefanovic has been branded ‘creepy’ after he called Kylie Minogue a ‘hot 50-year-old’ and told her to stop dating ‘handsome d**kheads’ in a bizarre interview.

The host, 43, also brought out a cake and sang happy birthday to the pop sensation in the wince-inducing chat during Sunday’s episode of 60 Minutes.

Viewers were less than impressed with the father-of-three’s onscreen antics, blasting the ‘trainwreck’ interview and calling for someone more ‘professional’ to take the helm.

Oh dear: Karl Stefanovic has been branded ‘creepy’ after he called Kylie Minogue a ‘hot 50-year-old’ and told her to stop dating ‘handsome d**kheads’ in a bizarre interview

Kylie, who was promoting her latest album Golden, talked about what it feels like to be turning almost 50 after decades in the limelight.

‘My friends say “Do you know what? I’m just going to try to enjoy myself, I’m just going to try love the people I love, do the best I can, understand as best as possible where I am in the world, where I may have stuffed it up, where I am at the moment,’ she said.

Karl replied grinning: ‘Well, you’re doing it very well. I mean, it helps obviously that you’re a hot 50-year-old.’

Kylie was left speechless by the comment and laughed: ‘Oh, well, thanks. We try, we try.’

Looking around awkwardly, she winced and added: ‘I mean, I don’t know what to say to that!’ as Karl chuckled opposite her.
