Kyle Sandilands slams MKR’s Manu Feildel after they have a VERY heated interview on his radio show

Kyle Sandilands slammed My Kitchen Rules judge Manu Feildel on his radio show on Friday after the pair had a tense chat live on-air.

French chef Manu, 48, awkwardly said goodbye to Kyle, 51, after being grilled about his new co-host Nigella Lawson and why she didn’t want to do the interview with him.

After Kyle’s co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson mentioned how uncomfortable the interview was, Kyle blasted the culinary star, saying: ‘Who gives as**t what he’s sick and tired of talking about!’

Kyle then ranted about Manu promising that ‘no topic was off limits’ on their KIIS FM show.

‘I’m not here to facilitate other people’s s**t. I like Manu, he can come on and I like the show [MKR]but I’m very shocked about the Nigella [Lawson] thing.’

‘The end was very awkward, I wasn’t sure what was going on there guys? But whatever,’ Jackie O said.

After Kyle's co-host Jackie O said how awkward things were, Kyle blasted the TV star saying: 'Who gives as**t what he's sick and tired of talking about!'

‘What do you mean? I think he felt embarrassed his co-host (Nigella) let him down,’ Kyle shot back.

‘Or he’s sick of talking about it,’ Jackie said.

During the chat, Kyle wouldn’t stop probing Manu about why the British TV chef Nigella was a no-show.

‘What’s her problem, apparently I hear, correct me if I’m wrong producers, the network is upset because Nigella’s team said “no way, you’re not going on that filthy show.” Our show, how does that happen?’ Kyle asked.

‘I have no idea, that’s news to me buddy! I will make sure she talks to you next time,’ Manu said with a laugh.

‘How am I meant to support you when the woman besides you loathes the thought of me… you just wriggled out of that and made a false promise. I think she’s amazing, she’s the queen, but when you find out someone who doesn’t like you, you can’t help but not like someone back,’ Kyle added.

‘I think you’re just being upset for no reason, Kyle,’ Manu said, keen to get off the subject.

Kyle said he thought Nigella was a ‘sweetie’ but isn’t a fan of her management team.

‘Can you sort her team out…’ Kyle asked Manu towards the end of the chat, which was greeted with awkward silence.

Nigella is joining Manu on the My Kitchen Rules reboot this year, replaced by disgraced chef Pete Evans.

According to The Australian, she will only appear in half the episodes of the show.

The publication reported Nigella ‘will appear only for the first round of the show with Manu Feildel.’

Chef Matt Preston will then replace her for the second round, before Colin Fassnidge and Curtis Stone man the show’s finals.

Nigella’s scant appearance comes despite her ‘reputedly huge fee’ the publication reports.

Global home-cooking sensation Nigella is replacing disgraced Pete Evans, who was axed from the Seven network in 2020 amidst the show’s falling ratings in its then eleventh year of production.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Channel Seven and Nigella’s management team for comment, in relation to this story.

My Kitchen Rules returns to Seven on Sunday at 7pm.
