Awkward moment Kyle Sandilands asks Hamish Blake if his mate Tommy Little is having an affair with Carrie Bickmore
It’s the rumour everyone in the comedy world is talking about: is Tommy Little dating Carrie Bickmore?
The pair, who have been friends for years and co-host the Hit Network’s national drive show, have been at the centre of gossip ever since Carrie announced her split from her long-term partner Chris Walker in January.
During an interview on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Thursday, Tommy’s friend Hamish Blake was grilled about the speculation by shock jock Kyle Sandilands.
Kyle asked him directly: ‘Is Tommy Little having an affair with Carrie Bickmore?’
Hamish responded that he was best friends with Tommy’s roommate John, who is ‘terrible at keeping secrets’ – so if the pair were secretly dating, he would knot.

‘John is my best mate and he is terrible at keeping secrets so I would have definitely heard about it,’ the Lego Masters presenter said.
Kyle’s co-host Jackie O Henderson agreed, saying Carrie and Tommy were ‘definitely’ not romantically involved – because she would know if they were.
‘No this is definitely not the case… I just know,’ she said.
It follows reports Carrie has grown close to her Hit FM co-host Tommy, 38, who is also single following his break-up with girlfriend Natalie Kyriacou in 2021.
Tommy rushed to the mother-of-three’s side in January when she confirmed her split from Chris, leading insiders to speculate their friendship could evolve into something more.
In recent months Tommy has shared several gushing tributes to Carrie on Instagram, and in one post called her the ‘best in the business’ who ‘lifts up everyone around her and makes them look good’.
Ahead of her last day on The Project last November, Tommy also treated the blonde bombshell to a private helicopter ride across Melbourne.
He is often seen close to her at glitzy events, including the 2022 Australian Commercial Radio Awards (ACRAs) last October, where he didn’t leave her side even as guests got up from their tables and mingled with others.
The duo are regularly seen posing for cosy selfies on social media, which has prompted curious fans to question whether romance is on the cards.
‘You guys make a lovely couple,’ one recently commented on a photo of the pair.
‘Get a room already, you two,’ another said.

It’s not hard to see why fans are hoping for love to blossom, as Tommy and Carrie are already known for their electric chemistry.
Their professional relationship began in 2016 when Tommy joined Carrie on the panel of The Project.
A year later, the pair began co-hosting Hit Network’s Melbourne drive show in 2017, and immediately gained a cult following thanks to their entertaining and organic banter.
Carrie announced her split from her longtime partner Chris in January this year via Instagram, saying the pair are focused on co-parenting their three children, Ollie, 15, Evie, seven, and Adelaide, four.
‘John [Tommy’s roommate] is my best mate and he is terrible at keeping secrets so I would have definitely heard about it,’ Hamish responded. Pictured Carrie Bickmore and Tommy Little
