Shaun Micallef was unable to hide his feelings toward Triple J Drive co-host, Lewis Hobba, when he joined the show as a guest on Tuesday afternoon.
Micallef, who was on the show to promote his new sitcom "The Ex-PM", became sentimental when reunited with Hobba's co-host Veronica Milsom, with whom Micallef worked with on his ABC show "Shaun Micallef's Mad as Hell".
In the obviously staged spoof, Micallef expresses regret that Milsom left the show to work with Hobba on Drive.
"I miss you," Micallef said to Milsom while they were "off air."
"I hope it works out with whatever you are hoping to accomplish with Lewis."
Things get more and more awkward as the tension escalates, with Hobba stating "nobody really watches TV anymore" -- to which Micallef abandons all acts of politeness and retorts with an insult that rhymes with "duck poo."
Check out the hilarious exchange above.
"The Ex-PM" will air at the special time of 9:05pm on Wednesday night.
