A separate interview on rival show "Today Tonight" also aired on Monday evening. Nurse Jacintha Saldanha answered the phone last week when the pair, impersonating Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles, called the hospital where the former Kate Middleton was being treated for acute morning sickness. She transferred the call to a fellow nurse caring for the duchess who gave the DJs confidential information about the Duchess's medical condition, which was broadcast on air. Three days later, Saldanha died. Police have not yet determined the 46-year-old's cause of death, but many immediately assumed it was related to the stress from the call. Greig and Christian have been taken off the air indefinitely. The radio hosts apologised on Monday for the hoax and both broke down in tears when asked about the moment they learned Saldanha was dead.(****END****)
