Kyle Sandilands has long struggled with his weight.
And on Tuesday, Sunrise host Natalie Barr asked his co-star Jackie ‘O’ Henderson if the shock jock would consider joining Weight Watchers after the blonde beauty announced she had signed up to the program.
After Jackie, 46, spoke about her quest to shed 10kg, Natalie quipped: ‘Do you think you can convince Kyle to join in?’

‘You know what, he’s actually been really health conscious lately as well,’ Jackie said.
‘But I reckon I could, he’s been a bit better than what he usually is but you never know, miracles can happen!’ she added with a laugh.
Kyle has often spoken about his battle with the bulge on his KIIS FM show.

Earlier this month, the radio star looked noticeably slimmer as he stepped out in his signature all-black outfit while leaving his best mate John Ibrahim’s King Cross office.
His slimmed down look came after he revealed last year he had gained 16kg.
Kyle weighed himself, tipping the scales at 146kg.
He explained that this was 16kg heavier than he was the last time he’d weighed himself.
‘Yep, I’ve gone up a bit!’ he exclaimed in shock after stepping on the scales.
‘I’ve gone from 130kg to 146kg,’ he laughed, before adding: ‘I haven’t done a s**t yet, mind you.’
‘Will that s**t weigh sixteen kilos?’ quizzed Jackie.
‘It might!’ Kyle shot back. ‘I’ve had some photographic worthy s**ts lately.’
He continued: ‘Plus I’ve got jeans on today, boots. A big heavy jumper. Haven’t done a s**t, haven’t done a p**s. I’ve eaten some breakfast.
‘I’ve guzzled six lattes this morning. All of that stuff weighs.’

He went on to say that he could ‘care less’ about the massive weight gain.
Back in 2017, Kyle was warned by a psychic that he was ‘going to die of a heart attack’ the following year.
While the psychic didn’t specify that his death would be weight related, she did warn the radio star to get a calcium score test done on his heart.
A calcium score test measures the calcium in your arteries to determine the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
In 2014, Kyle was also told he’d die soon due to his weight and lifestyle.
Obesity specialist Dr Edward Jackowski told New Idea that Kyle will be dead by the end of the year and was at risk of having a stroke or heart attack.
However, in previous years the radio personality has proudly shed some pounds.
In June 2019, Kyle told Daily Mail Australia that he had dropped ‘three belt sizes’ in the span of 12 months.
‘I’m eating healthy and dropping off weight, but it’s a slow process,’ he said.
‘I’ve lost three belt sizes and people I haven’t seen for ages are surprised when they see me, they all tell me I’ve lost weight,’ he added.
At the time, the Aussie A-lister said he had started exercising and was enjoying the benefits of a healthy meal delivery plan.
He also stopped some of his worst habits, such as drinking ‘two litres of Coca-Cola and two litres of milk every day’.
‘I was eating s**t before and I’m so stubborn that I never wanted to listen when people told me to get in shape,’ he explained.
‘I was grossly overweight and it was making me sick. My health is so much better now.’
Jackie was unveiled as the new ambassador for WW earlier this week.

She spoke candidly about how her weight gain had impacted her life, after she stacked on the kilos during the Covid-19 pandemic and became the ‘biggest I have ever been’.
‘I stopped wanting to leave the house and was avoiding social outings because I just didn’t feel well, motivated or confident anymore,’ Jackie said, adding that she would spend up to $300 per week on Uber Eats.
The Masked Singer judge went on to explain how her busy lifestyle and early-morning starts affected her sleeping pattern and energy levels.
Before she knew it, she’d slipped into unhealthy eating habits.
‘It can be a challenge to set a good standard for the day when you’re up at 4:30am and running out the door – your whole day and eating schedule can be a little bit out of whack from there,’ she said.
‘I was never cooking for myself, Uber Eats was my best friend. It was expensive and a really unhealthy habit, which made me feel so bad about myself.’
Jackie has joined the science-backed program to lose between 10 and 15 kilos, and hopes it will help her feel better about herself.
