In July, TV’s night of nights took place at The Star in Sydney, with the 2023 Logies bringing together famous faces from all over the industry. It wouldn’t be a big night without someone running off with something that doesn’t belong to them, however, and on Thursday morning Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O solved the mystery hanging over the event.
“Jackie forgot she was sitting on a secret, but she’s accidentally slipped it out,” Sandilands said on the KIIS 106.5 show.
“Do you recall back when the Logies were on, there was a big kerfuffle because Kitty Flanagan won the Logie and then someone else went and picked it up – because Kitty Flanagan wasn’t there.”
Explaining the night, Jackie said that “Julia Zemiro picked up the Logie on the night, she took the award on her behalf and then it vanished. Even at the after party, Julia was there protecting the Logie – but the Logie was apparently left by a couch when she went to the dance floor.”
“The music stopped all of a sudden someone was like ‘excuse me, someone has stolen a Logie’,” Sandilands Laughed. “Jackie looks around and she’s as much horror as everyone else – but this is the bit I’ve just found out, Jackie knew who stole the Logie!”
“I could have died,” Jackie said.
The big reveal came from Sandilands. “Intern Pete had the Logie under his jacket and pulled it open like a how mafia guy shows someone his gun, Pete’s got Kitty Flanagan’s Logie under his jacket.”
Whilst the pair laughed about it in the studio, Jackie said that the situation was far less funny on the night. “Kyle you don’t understand what that announcement was like – everyone was having the best time, they stop down the music in the middle of the night and then say ‘some asshole lowlife has stolen a Logie should’ve, could they return it no questions asked.’ I’m standing there on the dance floor looking at Pete going ‘freaking return it, because it’s not funny’ and he’s like ‘no, I will return it on air in the morning, it will be great content’. I said ‘no, you have to’.”
Getting The Kyle and Jackie O Show’s Intern Pete on the phone to explain his antics, Pete admitted that “I’ve actually been stressing about it because I’ve been checking Kitty Flanagan’s Instagram to be honest – she still hasn’t posted that Logie on there, so I don’t know if she ever got it back.”
Jackie raised the point that “You just left it randomly out of the toilet, how do you even know it was returned? Someone else could have taken it.”
“Surely not,” Pete replied. “Nobody would do anything that stupid!”
