Radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson backtracks on VERY awkward sex question during an interview with married NRL star Latrell Mitchell
Radio host Jackie O’ Henderson was left red-faced on Wednesday after asking an NRL player if he planned to ‘pick up’ before the State of Origin opener – only for the sportsman to clarify he’s married with children.
Henderson and her co-host Kyle Sandilands were chatting to Latrell Mitchell of the South Sydney Rabbitohs and NSW Blues on The Kyle and Jackie O Show when they seemingly forgot he was in a committed relationship.
Mitchell, who was relaxing in Townsville with NSW teammates Addo-Carr and Damien Cook, was first asked by Sandilands if he was ‘cruising’ the town for ‘the talent’.
Awkward! FM radio star Jackie O’ backtracked from an embarrassing sex question directed towards South Sydney Rabbitoh’s fullback Latrell Mitchell
Henderson, 46, laughed and said: ‘Are you allowed to pick up before Origin day?’
Unbeknownst to the radio presenters, Mitchell is actually married and has kids.
Sandilands, who was amused by his co-host’s gaffe, said: ‘Surely their wives would have a problem with that? You know his wife listens [to the show], Jackie? Why don’t you say hi?’
‘I’m married, I’m married’: Latrell responds quickly over the phone after being asked by Kyle if he was ‘cruising’ for ‘the talent’ and if he was going to ‘pick up before Origin day?’ by Jackie
‘I’m married, I’m married,’ Mitchell said.
Henderson seemed genuinely sorry about the gaffe and apologised to Mitchell.
The rugby league star is married to his long-term partner, Brielle Mercy, with whom he shares two children.
Their second child, Aleena, was born in April last year.
Sorry! Jackie O’ was seen on air blushing and profusely apologising after discovering that Latrell was married
Mitchell will be making a big return to the NSW Origin side after being dropped in controversial circumstances after the 2019 opening match.
The Blues are trying to reclaim an Origin win after losing last year’s series.
Sandilands finished the interview with some motivational talk against the Maroons, saying: ‘Just get out there and f***ing smash these guys.’
