Whoops! The Kyle and Jackie O Show is DUMPED after they accidentally dialled Delta Goodrem’s number during a live radio segment
The Kyle and Jackie O Show was pulled from the airwaves shortly after 8am on Monday morning.
Host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson hit the ‘dump button’ after accidentally dialling Delta Goodrem’s phone number live on air.
Earlier in the program, the 44-year-old had accidentally flirted with Delta’s boyfriend Matthew Copley, believing he was single.

Matthew, who is a session guitarist, was appearing on the show for a live in-studio performance with Conrad Sewell.
Jackie, seemingly unaware of Matthew’s relationship with Delta, asked the handsome, long-haired musician if he was single.
Her co-host Kyle Sandilands responded: ‘Yeah, he’s taken. Sorry!’

Kyle then added: ‘Poor Jackie’s the only one in the room who doesn’t actually realise what’s going on there!’
After being told about Matthew and Delta’s romantic history, Jackie admitted she was ‘so mortified’.
But the embarrassment continued when she accidentally called up Delta, 34, from her radio desk and couldn’t shut the phone down.
‘How do I hang up, Adam?’ the mother-of-one asked a KIIS FM producer.

Kyle added: ‘Can we get an engineer in here? Jackie has pushed every button on the phone screen. Now nothing’s working. Nothing’s working now!’
As the situation escalated, Jackie did something that usually only the KIIS FM censor is allowed to do: hit the ‘dump button’.
At that moment, the broadcast abruptly ended and a booming voiceover said: ‘This station you’ve been listening to has been dumped.
‘This means someone has said something inappropriate and is getting in trouble. The broadcast will return in seconds.’
‘Dumping’ is radio terminology for when a live show is cut off because the broadcast delay (usually around 45 seconds) is insufficient to censor inappropriate content.
That’s awkward! But the embarrassment continued when Jackie accidentally called up Delta, 34, from her radio desk and couldn’t shut the phone down
