And while reflecting on his encounters with Hollywood’s biggest stars, the 64-year-old ranked some of his notable interviewees from one to ten.

Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Wednesday, Kochie sang the praises of one iconic British actress before slamming a major music industry player, as well as an acclaimed actor.

Kochie, who hosts Sunrise alongside Sam Armytage, was first asked to rank Canadian superstar Justin Bieber.

‘He’s a three! He was just a brat, well he was back then. [He was] Just a bit of a diva. One of our floor managers was positioning him for a song and gently said, “This is where you stand,” and he said, “Don’t you dare touch me!”‘ he claimed.

‘But by the looks of it, he’s sort of grown up and matured and is quite a good boy now.’

Kochie then gushed over American pop star Katy Perry, saying: ‘She’s bright, talented, quick-witted and effervescent. She did the weather better than our weather guy does. I’d definitely rank her an eight or nine!’

Radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson replied: ‘I have to agree with you on Katy Perry. In the whole time that we’ve known her, from the very beginning of her career to now, she’s never changed and has always been an absolute darling.’

Next, Kochie was asked to rate American actor and comedian Michael Richards.

‘He was annoying, and probably would have been a four!’ he said.

‘I’m a huge Seinfeld fan, and I was really looking forward to interviewing him. Everyone wanted him to be funny, and so I fed him a line to be funny, and he was deadly serious!

‘So I was like, “He’s being Michael Richards.” So I fed a serious line to him, and he was funny! I went, “Who are we interviewing here?” I’d give him a three.’

Radio host Kyle Sandilands noted: ‘When you’re doing an interview, you would expect everyone to be on their A-game because they are usually selling something – a show, a book, a movie.’

Jackie added: ‘It’s astounding how many don’t give a s**t. Just don’t bother then. I’d rather no interview than this.’

2. Hugh Jackman 10/10

3. Matt Damon 10/10

4. Katy Perry 9/10 

5. David Duchovny 4/10

6. Michael Richards 3/10

7. Justin Bieber 3/10

8. Harrison Ford 2/10 

Kochie agreed, saying: ‘I’ve cut people off and said, “You obviously don’t want to be here, so it’s a waste of time for our viewers,” and moved on.’

When asked about The X-Files actor David Duchovny, 60, the breakfast TV star admitted he found him ‘a bit boring’.

‘I’d do a four for him. He’s a bit too serious. You know when people talk about their craft and their journey? I’m lost. Snoring, over it!’ he said.

Kochie’s enthusiasm suddenly sky-rocketed when he was asked about his experiences with Dame Julie Andrews.

‘She’s a ten! I’m a massive Sound of Music fan, so I had high expectations. I met her, and I fell in love. She was divine,’ he said.

Discussing their meeting further, David added: ‘We interviewed her on the show, and then [a few weeks later] it was Disneyland’s 40th birthday. We were there that morning on the red carpet, and we were squeezed in between the two major American networks who didn’t talk to us all afternoon.  

‘She was the ambassador for that Disney birthday, and she comes down the red carpet and looks over and goes, “Hello, Kochie, how are you?” and comes over and chats!’

Kochie also had fond memories of his interview with Hollywood hunk Matt Damon.

‘Fantastic bloke! Walked into Matt’s interview, sat down with him, and he goes, “I love your boots.” He was absolutely charming and normal. He’s a great guy and a ten,’ he said.

Despite neglecting to give her a rating out of ten, Kochie also noted how impressed he was by Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis.

In stark contrast, Jackie explained that her interview with the original Scream Queen didn’t turn out as they had hoped.

‘Jamie was fabulous… until I told her Kyle was a [Donald] Trump supporter, and she turned on a dime!’ she said.

Kyle added: ‘She stood up, got angry and walked out. At the end, she gave me the look of death!’

'I met her, and I fell in love. She was divine': Kochie's enthusiasm sky-rocketed when he was asked about his experiences with Dame Julie Andrews

Kochie then dubbed Hugh Jackman ‘fantastic’, but joked that he took offence to the actor jumping in the pool when they both stayed at the same resort years earlier.

‘He was training for Wolverine. He comes back from a run and dives in the pool, everyone going gaga! Despite that, he would be a ten,’ he said.

Things took a turn when Oscar nominee Harrison Ford was brought up.

‘Okay, he would be a two!’ David said without hesitation. ‘He’s one of those grumpy blokes that I was talking about before, where I said, “You obviously don’t want to be here.”‘

'He's a fan!' Despite neglecting to give her a rating out of ten, Kochie also noted how impressed he was by Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis (pictured)

When Jackie asked how the Blade Runner star reacted when his interview was cut short, Kochie quipped: ‘Well, you couldn’t tell. He had a grumpy face the whole time!’

Jackie added that she and Kyle had a similar experience with Harrison, saying: ‘We went to his hotel room, and we had the same vibe.

‘I felt like he was sitting in a very inappropriate way. He had major man-spreading in my direction. One [leg] was hoiked up on the arm of the lounge chair.’

Kyle added: ‘You could see the shape of his testicles!’
