Is Kyle Sandilands Going To Get The Chop From Australia’s Got Talent?
It was reported over the weekend that Kyle Sandilands did not turn up to the Melbourne auditions of Australia’s Got Talent. At the time it was unclear if he had informed the producers that he was not going to show up.
However reports today in the Herald Sun indicate that maybe he didn’t.
Production was delayed almost two hours as Channel 7 scrambled to bring in Dancing with the Stars judge Todd McKenney as a last-minute replacement yesterday.
It is believed that network bosses went into crisis management, deciding whether Sandilands had a future on the show after his repeated absences.
Seven’s head of production, Brad Lyons, said: “Kyle’s management advised us that he was too unwell to attend work yesterday. We are monitoring the situation closely.”
A Seven spokeswoman said Sandilands was in “the care of his GP” and expected that he would be back on deck for the Perth leg of auditions next week.
But an insider says Sandilands is extremely unhealthy and depressed over ex-wife Tamara Jaber’s new relationship with semi-professional sports star Ken Aseme.
Jaber went public with her new love affair in a magazine last week.
