Anthony Albanese refused to tell Kyle Sandilands how many people he slept with in a broad and sometimes goofy morning radio interview.
During his first appearance on Kiis FM in Sydney, the upbeat Labor leader was asked about his taste in music, climate change, marijuana and trans rights.
Sandilands asked the father of one, who has been dating union official Jodie Haydon for two years, how many sexual partners he has had.
Mr Albanese laughed and replied: ‘I’m not going to give that up… I’ll plead the fifth’, prompting Sandilands to quip ‘are they in single digits?’ Albo, they are in single digits”.

Sandilands – a heavy marijuana user – also asked Mr Albanese if he would legalize the drug for recreational use.
But the Labor leader told him to speak to New South Wales Premier Dominic Perrottet because the states make the rules. The ACT became the first state or territory to decriminalize drugs in 2020.
Sandilands and co-host Jackie O previously said they planned to vote for Scott Morrison – but at the end of the 39-minute chat Sandilands told Mr Albanese “I like you as a man and Jackie said she is now considering supporting him.
Sandilands also invited the Labor leader, a notorious music fan, to DJ during his wedding to Tegan Kynaston.
Labor is ten points ahead of the Coalition according to the latest Newspoll. If this result is repeated on election day, Mr. Albanese will take power.
The 59-year-old split from ex-wife Carmel Tebbutt in 2019 after 19 years of marriage and 30 years together.
He said he was still “emotionally bruised” by the sudden split which did not involve any third parties but came as a shock.
The Labor leader met Ms Haydon in early 2020 at a conference in Melbourne where he was speaking and they later went for a drink near his home in western Sydney.
Ms Haydon, who has never been married or had children, said she was not looking for a relationship but realized she had fallen in love with Mr Albanese when he was in a car accident in January 2021.
His Toyota was rammed by a Range Rover and he was rushed to hospital for X-rays but escaped serious injury.
