Kyle Sandilands has come out to bat for TV host Grant Denyer after he was falsely accused last week of having an affair with his Dancing with the Stars partner Lily Cornish.

The radio presenter, 50, rubbished New Idea's report implying Grant was cheating on his wife Chezzi, saying it's common practice for tabloid magazines to use photos 'out of context'.

'It's New Idea. Everyone knows everything inside it is invented rubbish,' he said on Wednesday, echoing the Denyers' recent rebuttal of the front-page story.

Kyle added that he believed Grant when he said he was just comforting his dance partner by giving her a pat on the leg after she'd received some sad personal news.

'[Grant] is like that - he's a sweetie,' he told listeners of The Kyle and Jackie O Show. 'He's almost like a woman himself. I totally believe what he said.'

He continued: 'The guy's had multiple broken backs; he's barely able to even move.

'He is a nice guy. I give him a bit of a hard time [but he's] super nice. Denyer and his wife Chezzi, that's a real relationship. That's a real love story.

'[The affair rumours are] bulls**t. Not true. I didn't even read the story, I knew it was that much bulls**t.' 

Co-host Jackie 'O' Henderson added that the rumours must be 'awful' for Chezzi.

New Idea published a front-page story on October 18 falsely implying Grant was having an affair with dancer Lily Cornish. 

The magazine published photos of Grant with his hand on Lily's thigh in between rehearsals for Dancing with the Stars: All Stars in Sydney.

While the photos were accompanied by the headline 'Grant Denyer Caught Out', the full set of images has since been released, offering a more complete picture of what happened.

Denial: The original article falsely suggested Grant and Lily (left) were cheating on their respective partners - a claim the Denyers have strongly denied - but the photos themselves actually suggest a platonic relationship
