It seems Natalie Imbruglia has long held a special place in Alex Cullen’s heart.

The Today show newsreader was left red-faced on Friday during an awkward interview with the actress-turned-singer.

Alex, 40, couldn’t hide his embarrassment after hosts Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon introduced him to Natalie live on air.

‘This is perhaps one of your biggest fans, our own newsreader Alex Cullen. Alex, this is your chance. What would you like to say to Natalie?’ Ally asked.

An embarrassed Alex said: ‘It’s just wonderful to see you, Natalie, and I’m really stoked that your son and my son are both named Max.

‘It’s an absolute pleasure to talk to you.’

‘He is getting nervous,’ Karl added, bursting into laughter.

‘I am very nervous, this was thrust upon me at the very last minute but great to see you, you look great,’ Alex admitted.

‘This is so embarrassing,’ Karl said, as Ally agreed: ‘This is so awkward I don’t want it to end.’

Earlier on the show, Karl and Ally had made fun of the fact Alex had a teenage crush on Natalie before interviewing her.

‘It’s getting that close that chat with Nat. I’m very excited to be talking to her,’ Ally said.

‘But not as excited as Alex. He may have had a poster on his wall,’ Karl added, while in hysterics.

‘We might be talking to Natalie about that. Are you getting nervous?’ Ally asked him, to which he responded: ‘I am.’

An embarrassed Alex said: 'It's just wonderful to see you Natalie and I'm really stoked that your son and my son are both named Max... It's an absolute pleasure to talk to you'
