Kyle Sandilands has made a very public declaration of love on air – to his old friend and ex-bodyguard, Max Lee.
On today’s episode of The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Sandilands was in the middle of discussing plans for his upcoming wedding to fiancée Tegan Kynaston when he took the opportunity to ask one of his long-time friends to be an integral part of his wedding.
After officially asking Lee to be part of his “groomsman’s team”, he said, ”You’re one of my oldest friends, you’re the first person I ever spoke to when I moved to Sydney… we’ve lived with each other, we’ve travelled the world together… I would really love if you joined me up there.
“When you think about who really is important to you in your life, I don’t have many,” Sandilands admitted, “And you are definitely one.”
Lee thanked Sandilands, saying, ”That means a lot. I’m in shock, but I’d be honoured”, he accepted as the studio filled with cheers.
Sandilands also divulged some of his unconventional wedding plans, sharing his unique pitch for wedding speeches.
“I said, let’s do speech roulette, where we put everyone’s name in the hat and we pull it out,” shared Sandilands, but he was immediately shut down by his co-host.
“Terrible idea,” said co-host Jackie O Henderson, “Every single person at that wedding will now not be having a good time until the speeches are over because they’ll be worried about it, and then we all have to then prepare a speech!”
“No you don’t, you just have to ad-lib it,” said Sandilands, “People aren’t gonna wanna do that, did Tegan veto that?”

After confirming that Kynaston did in fact veto speech roulette, Sandilands shared her reaction.
“She said it was like a carnival activity and she goes ‘Well why do you have to make everything a circus?”
Henderson agreed, saying, “Thank god for Tegan.”
