‘There are so many things that would cancel Hamish and I,’ he admitted.

‘I promise you – because Hamish and I do another podcast called The Remembering Project where we listen back – there are things we listen back to and go “nah, we’re not going to say that in this day and age.”

‘Someone can trawl through and if they really want to, they can get their knives out and finish our careers.’

Nova host Liam said he listened to an old episode from 2006 on the way to to the studio ahead of the interview with Andy.

‘Hamish has been turkey slapped on the Hamish and Andy show!’ Andy can be heard laughing in the clip.

‘What are we doing!’ laughed Lee. ‘I can’t even remember doing it, I’ve blocked it out of my mind!’

‘The context here – that I think is important – is that you used a slice of turkey to slap him in the face,’ Liam said.

‘I asked The Hundred whether they wanted another season of the show and it was a resounding “yes”. You have to trust the data,’ Andy said in a statement to TV Blackbox.

‘I also asked them whether they wanted Gold Logie winner Hamish Blake to replace me as host and I’ve decided to keep their answer confidential. 

‘Some data you can’t trust. I’ll be back for season three.’
