Karl Stefanovic labels Richard Reid “tosser of the highest order”

Karl Stefanovic labels Richard Reid “tosser of the highest order”

Today morning show star Karl Stefanovic and occasional Studio 10 co-host Richard Reid have appeared on Kyle and Jackie O’s radio show to blast each other.

Stefanovic appeared on the KIIS FM’s breakfast show when he was asked how he had first felt when Reid revealed on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! last year that the Today star had “hair plugs”.

“So I go into the hair room, and this guy looks up and he’s kinda like balding. It was Karl Stefanovic without his spray-on hair … And then he went away and got hair plugs,” Reid said in the jungle.

Well, it appears the Stefanovic took the I’m A Celeb star’s words to heart as he said he was “a tosser of the highest order”.

“Richard and I have had a beautiful relationship over many years,” Stefanovic said to Kyle and Jackie O. “I never really saw him in person because he was always too busy flapping about.

“When he said it (on I’m A Celeb) … I just thought, ‘You’re just a tosser! Richard Reid is a tosser of the highest order!’”

Kyle and Jackie O proceeded to ring Reid after Karl’s segment ended to ask his thoughts on the “tosser” comments.

“I think it might be a little stretch that our relationship was beautiful,” Reid said.

“You two don’t like each other?” Kyle asked.

“I like Karl just fine,” Reid replied. “I like him just fine, in small doses. I don’t have a problem with Karl … not much.”

When asked why he had a bad relationship with Stefanovic, Reid went on to say: “Karl got a little full of himself. He started talking about himself in the third person. I just like everyone to be down to earth and accessible. He just got a little full of himself and I didn’t really care for that.”

Reid also had a dig at the Today show’s poor ratings over the past few years, saying, “I kind of turned off like the rest of Australia”.

Karl Stefanovic is currently back on air as host of the Today show after quitting back in 2018, alongside Allison Langdon. Richard Reid, who won I’m A Celeb last year, is a regular co-host on Studio 10.
