Jackie O stunned by Kyle’s makeover
Kyle Sandilands has made an all black attire his signature look, so his radio colleagues have been pretty shocked to see the star dressed head-to-toe in tropical gear this week.
Sandilands has been dialling into work from his new $1.3 million holiday home in Port Douglas, with the tropical weather making it almost impossible for him to dress in all black.
During Tuesday's KIIS FM morning show, Kyle and Jackie O's newsreader Brooklyn Ross was first to express his shock over the 49-year-old's new look.
"Kyle you look so good! I love this look on you! You're just wearing a white buttoned up collared shirt."
"A white linen shirt. Gee it doesn't take much to get you off does it?" Kyle crudely joked.
"It's unbuttoned down you're showing a bit of chest hair there. It's just so different to your normal clothes," Brooklyn continued.
"I know it is! We're used to seeing you in all black all the time," a perplexed Jackie added.

"You know how I wear those black T shirts 24/7 all day everywhere I go? Up here in tropical far north Queensland I sweat so much that there is like a weird outline of white, chalky, salty sweat stains on it. I had to ditch them. I can't wear them up here," Kyle explained.
Kyle recently announced that he had purchased the holiday home in north Queensland with his girlfriend Tegan Kynaston. On Monday, he showed just how well he is settling into the tropical lifestyle, wearing a floral shirt, fedora and sunglasses.
"Holiday mode," wrote the Kyle and Jackie O show's Instagram page.
Fans were also in disbelief over his new attire, flocking to the comments section to compliment his look.
"Kyle has a coloured shirt on I don't believe this," wrote one fan.
"Finally some colour brother," wrote another.
A third wrote, "Omg your not wearing black," along with two clapping emojis.
Meanwhile, earlier this month it was reported that the shock-jock had been fined "about a quarter of a million dollars" for taking too many sick days at KIIS FM.
In years gone by, Kyle's penchant for chucking a sickie has been well documented. But during an interview with Kate Langbroek on air recently, the radio star insisted he's changed.
"I'm here most of the time," he told Langbroek, who co-hosts 3PM Pick Up on KIIS FM.
Kyle then revealed he has a strict number of sick days he's allowed to take each year, and if he goes over, he gets fined big bucks.
"You know how you get sick days every year? My accountant told me that I'm over … all before February," he said. "Then the fines system that they put in place here for me (kicks in).
"Anyway … I realised that about a quarter of a million dollars had been pissed away for nothing!"
"Exactly, you would have missed out on a lot of money," Jackie O agreed.
To be fair, Kyle isn't short on money. Kyle reportedly gets paid between $7-8 million each per year.
That means he gets paid $39,000 for every single three-and-a-half hour radio show he does.
