How Jackie ‘O’ Henderson and Kyle Sandilands ‘protect’ one another on air

Jackie ‘O’ Henderson and Kyle Sandilands are known for their honest banter on air.

And while they often shock listeners with their remarks, Jackie told TV Week on Monday how they have each other’s back by not discussing certain topics on air. 

Having worked with Kyle, 50, for nearly 20 years, the 46-year-old said they know each other ‘better than anyone else’ and would never make one another feel uncomfortable.

‘Kyle is the one I would go to if I were in a jam,’ she said. ‘He’s the person I’d go to for anything, because no-one has my back like he does – and I have his back. We know each other better than anyone else.’ 

Jackie went on to reveal how her marriage breakdown in 2018 was something Kyle knew not to bring up on air.

‘I protect him where I know there are certain things he doesn’t want to discuss yet,’ she said. ‘For instance, when I had my marriage break-up [in 2018], it was a no-go.’

‘He would never push boundaries that made me feel uncomfortable,’ she added.

Jackie amicably separated from husband Lee Henderson in late 2018, and are understood to have recently finalised their divorce. They share daughter Kitty, 10.

While divorce talk is off the table, one thing Jackie is happy to talk about is her incredible 10 kilogram weight loss.

When she reached her goal weight in August, Jackie said she was feeling ‘great’. 

‘I’ve got so much more energy and I don’t walk past the mirror anymore and think, “My God, how did I get to this point?”‘ she told Woman’s Day.

‘I can wear what I want, and I finally feel like my old self again.’ 

Jackie had signed up to WW after noticing her weight was spiralling out of control due to her busy schedule, irregular sleeping patterns and poor food choices.

Since then she has been following a strict, yet nutritionally balanced, meal plan.
