Seven has now confirmed its one-off special that sees Kyle and Jackie O bringing their radio partnership to television once again, this time in A Night with the Stars.
There have long been rumours that Sandilands wanted a primetime chat show.
Clearly testing the waters (and appeasing the desires of a talent show judge during contract negotiation?), this special will air “later this year.” Which is probably a euphemism for “once the ratings have finished.”
Their last on-screen series together was the final season of Big Brother.
Points to the publicist who wrote this one:
Top-rating radio partners Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O will bring their unique, fun and often controversial style to prime time, in the new chat-variety special Kyle and Jackie O’s A Night with the Stars.
To air later this year, A Night with the Stars will see Kyle and Jackie doing what they do best – memorable and outrageous celebrity interviews.
On their weekday Southern Cross Austereo radio show, Kyle and Jackie chat to the biggest names from the world of entertainment – and A Night with the Stars will continue that tradition. Guests will share their intimate, humorous and often different points of view with Kyle and Jackie.
To be filmed in Los Angeles, A Night with the Stars will air soon on Seven.
