PRIME Minister Scott Morrison has brushed off rumours Parliament House’s prayer room is frequently used for sex in a cringe-inducing FM radio interview.

Former Labor senator and reality TV contestant Sam Dastyari had been on the same Brisbane station a day earlier spreading salacious rumours about the room of worship.

“The only thing the prayer room is used for is for people having sexual relations with each other,” he told 97.3 FM.

That prompted a blunt character assessment from Mr Morrison.

“He’s a dill,” he said.

The hosts pushed the religious prime minister, who prefers to pray in his own office, on a topic he had no interest in.

“I have no idea but only someone who scrapes along the bottom of the bucket, of the chum bucket, would know that,” Mr Morrison said.

He was so flustered by the bawdy chat he forgot Malcolm Turnbull’s wife Lucy’s name, initially calling her Julie before drawing a blank.

“All that Dastyari talk has thrown me off,” Mr Morrison said.

It’s the same program that tricked Mr Turnbull into saying he and his wife liked to “Netflix and chill”, a euphemism for sex.
