Dannii Minogue and Andrew G to stand in for suspended Sandilands

Austereo is looking to the world of reality television to find the stand-ins for suspended Kyle Sandilands on Sydney’s 2Day FM.  

The network has drafted in Australia’s Got Talent judge Dannii Minogue and Australian Idol presenter Andrew G as co-presenters while Sandilands is off the air.

Sandilands was suspended earlier today after he joked on Tuesday about TV presenter Magda Szubanski losing weight at a concentration camp.

Although officially the pair have only been lined up for tomorrow, Mumbrella understands they’ve been asked to make themselves available until at least the end of the week.

Todays developments come only three weeks after the Kyle & Jackie O show returned to the air following the lie detector furore. Sandilands was sacked from his Australian Idol judging role as a result of that row.
