On the Kyle and Jackie O Show this morning, Jackie O Henderson shared that her daughter Kitty, seven, had an accident on Thursday which resulted in her being rushed to the hospital.

Kitty fell from a bar at her school playground and consequently suffered temporary memory loss.

"Kitty got a concussion" the radio host shared with their listeners. "Yeah she fell on her head it was really bad.

"And when she stood up she was crying and she just completely lost her memory... She was asking the same questions over and over and over again.

"'Where am I? Is there something wrong with me' And then we were rushing her to the children's hospital and for the whole trip, she was saying exactly the same thing. It's so frightening when that happens" Jackie O explained.

Thankfully, the hospital eventually gave the family the all clear and Kitty was allowed to return home.

In fact, Jackie O said that when Kitty was at the dinner table after coming back from hospital, she recited an entire book from memory.

"She read the whole book verbatim" Jackie shared with co-host Kyle Sandilands.

"Lee and I were looking at each other going 'OMG has this knock on the head opened up a part of her brain'... We have got a genius child I am sure of it!" she laughed.

Turns out we're not the only ones who weren't fans of Ed Sheeran's random Game of Thrones cameo.

When Ed first showed up on the Season 7 premiere of the fantasy drama, social media mocked the cameo as 'painful', leaving Ed Sheeran to quit Twitter after being trolled relentlessly.

Now, Hodor himself has weighed in on the controversial cameo.

Kristian Nairn, who played Hodor on the show, believed Ed's cameo was a huge distraction for viewers.

"I'm not a fan of the cameos in Game of Thrones," the 42-year-old actor and DJ told The Huffington Post. "I don't like them. I think it's stupid."

"Especially Ed Sheeran," Nairn added. "I was like, 'Why is Ed Sheeran here?' He's a great guy, great musician, but why is he in Game of Thrones?"

"We're all caught in this amazing world and spend so much time and money and talent to create, and all of a sudden there's a pop star? What?" he said.

5. “Too much friction.” Georgie Gardner admits there is “tension” in relationship with Karl Stefanovic.

Gardner spoke for the first time about her reaction to the scandal.

Today show co-hosts Georgie Gardner and Karl Stefanovic have spoken about the “tension” in their relationship on Thursday afternoon’s episode of the Hit Network’s Hughesy & Kate.

On the subject of Stefanovic’s now infamous Uber conversation, where he criticised Gardner for “sitting on the fence” too much, and remarked the 48-year-old journalist would need to “step up” if she wanted to “stay on the show,” Kate Langbroek said she assumed there was some “friction” between the two hosts.

Gardner responded, “a fraction too much friction”.

“Is there too much?” Langbroek pressed.

“Occasionally,” Gardner said.
