The 43-year-old television personality also opened up for the first time about the now infamous Ubergate scandal. Stefanovic told the Kyle and Jackie O Show, 'Channel Nine weren ' t happy , and upstairs weren ' t happy , and that's fair enough.'

He joked that Gardner is "a country mile better" than former co-host Lisa Wilkinson.

In the revealing chat, Stefanovic – who confirmed he's marrying partner Jasmine Yarbrough later this year ("It was not a $120,000 engagement ring – that's more bullshit from those magazines. It was a lot more," he joked) – lashed out at Women's Day, New Idea and Daily Mail, calling the publications "disgraceful" for fuelling interest in his private life and publishing paparazzi photos of his family.

He also touched on his floundering public perception following the breakdown of his marriage to ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn in March 2017.

"It's hard. I think for some out there, what happened is here was a guy a couple of years ago who was married with three kids," Stefanovic said.

"I think this happens to people, and I'm sorry for any hurt that it caused and causes. But this happened to me... and I fell in love not long after that.

"At the end of the day, it is what it is and I'm sorry if that causes anyone hurt. But I won't be apologising to my nearest and dearest because I don't need to."
