1. Biggest mistake of my life.” The text message Beau Ryan sent Kyle Sandilands about his mental health.
“I don’t have anything [physically wrong] that I know of… but there is something wrong, but it’s not a medical thing,” he told Jackie O on Monday morning.
“I’m not joking. Inside my person, I’m very sad,” he said, choking up.

Now, the 48-year-old radio host says he regrets opening up about his mental health because now fellow celebrities won’t stop texting him to check in on him.
“Biggest mistake of my life, saying that. Every b*****d and their dog sent messages, which is very nice, but all day the phone was buzzing. It was so annoying,” he said on The Kyle and Jackie O show this morning.
“Do not want it! God, there was so many… everyone I’ve ever known. Celebrities, news presenters, television stars, movie stars, sports stars,” he added.
He then shared a text he received from retired rugby league player and fill- in KIIS FM presenter Beau Ryan.
“‘I’m sitting there relaxing, and I open my phone, ‘Hey man, it’s Beau Ryan. Just wanted to say I really hope you’re ok and I’m always here for you.'”
‘”And for what it’s worth bro, I really look up to you and I’m glad that I’m on your team. Stay strong, and please take care my bro.”‘
Kyle mocked Beau’s message, saying “there were ‘too many ‘bros’ for a start” and that he hadn’t bothered to reply. While he acknowledged the gesture was nice, Kyle explained that he didn’t like people feeling sorry for him.
“I should’ve just kept quiet and got fatter and fatter,” he said.
Jackie O said she also received a bunch of text messages from people offering Kyle support.

We’ve reached the point in our season where COVID rules come into play. As a food show, hygiene is always at the top of mind and practice, but now you’ll see social distancing, too. For those of you wondering where I am in this landmark episode, I had sinusitis and took myself to the GP in order to do the safe, thorough and responsible thing in such uncertain times. I was cleared and returned to set the next day. As a cast and crew, we take the health and safety of each other and our community seriously and feel fortunate to continue bringing you a season we’re thrilled you love. As a nation, we have worked hard to flatten the curve. We are still not through it completely, so we must continue to do the right thing and stick to the guidelines created to keep us all safe.
She went on to explain that the MasterChef cast and crew “take the health and safety of each other and our community seriously and feel fortunate to continue bringing you a season we’re thrilled you love”.
So there we have it, we can expect to see Melissa safely back on our screens tonight when MasterChef continues at 7.30pm on Channel Ten.
3. A cryptic tweet and Killing Eve: The theory about Taylor Swift’s brother, Austin Swift.
Ever since her long-time manager, Scott Borchetta sold his label Big Machine Records to Scooter Braun, the controversial manager of Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato, she has been unhappy about it for one reason: she is not allowed to perform her old songs.
“Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun have now said that I’m not allowed to perform my old songs on television because they claim that would be re-recording my music before I’m allowed to next year,” she wrote across all her social media accounts.
Now, Taylor might have found a way around that.
In the latest episode of Killing Eve, an unknown band called Jack Leopards and the Dolphin Club performed her hit song, Look What You Made Me Do.
Taylor was so happy about it that she tweeted that she was “VERY STOKED”.
