Jessica Rowe reveals the VERY embarrassing item a bus driver had to remove from her car after it exploded in the middle of a busy Sydney road

Jessica Rowe and her daughter Allegra, 14, were left traumatised after the former Studio 10 host’s $66,000 Volvo exploded in the middle of a busy road in Sydney on Thursday.

And while the incident was shocking, Jessica made light of a funny moment during the ordeal on Friday’s Kyle and Jackie O Show.

The 50-year-old revealed there was an embarrassing item that Mev – the bus driver who alerted her to the smoke coming out of her car – helped remove from the boot of her charred car.

Embarrassing item: Jessica Rowe revealed the BIZARRE item she had to remove from her car after it exploded in the middle of a busy road in Sydney on Thursday after picking up her daughter Allegra, 14, from school

Jess first noted that her husband, Nine news anchor Peter Overton, warned her not to tell people about the very awkward item.

But she couldn’t help but confess what it was to radio host Kyle Sandilands.

‘I do like a costume Kyle – so I had a cat head in the boot,’ Jess started. 

‘Why?’ a confused Kyle asked. 

‘Well, why not?’ the blonde beauty responded, as the entire studio laughed.  

‘Sometimes I like to embarrass my children when I pick them up, so I put the cat head on.’

The purr-fect look! But Jess confessed: ‘I do like a costume Kyle – so I had a cat head in the boot.’ Pictured is Jess with the cat head costume on. In the Instagram post, from 2019, she joked in the caption: ‘It’s that time again! School pick up time!’

 ‘I tilt my hat to your girls, they are working against the grain just with their own family… Imagine walking towards mum’s Volvo and there’s mum looking like a giant cat,’ Kyle said.  

 ‘Yes that’s what I do, so luckily I could rescue that from the boot,’ Jess added.  

Kyle said that Peter likely used the opportunity to ensure the cat head was removed from the car.

Jess also spoke to Studio 10 about her husband Peter’s reaction to the traumatising event.

She explained that Allegra was ‘hysterical’ when she called her father, just before he was due to go on air to present Nine’s 6pm News.

‘He obviously was just so worried about her and so concerned, so he came home, he didn’t read the news last night. He just wanted to give Allegra a hug and give me a hug,’ Jess said.

‘The thing is we’re all fine, but for him he couldn’t believe it. I think for all of he was like “what? What do you mean the car’s on fire?”‘ she added.

The author also noted that they have no idea what caused the car to go on fire.

Co-host Sarah Harris asked if she knew about car’s oil, but Jess said: ‘Well dare I say I don’t do that, Peedee does that,’ referring to her husband’s pet name.

‘I know how to put petrol, but Peedee does all the other stuff so it was all fine and it’s been a really good reliable car, up until now,’ she said.

Family: Jess said, ‘(Peter) obviously was just so worried about her and so concerned, so he came home, he didn’t read the news last night. He just wanted to give Allegra a hug and give me a hug’

Jess was picking up her eldest daughter from school in Sydney’s eastern suburbs on Thursday afternoon when her black Volvo XC 60 began billowing smoke on New South Head Road in Rose Bay.

A passing school bus driver named Mev flagged them down to alert them of the danger and helped the pair escape from the vehicle and flee to safety just as the car burst into flames.

The pair escaped uninjured but were traumatised by the ordeal.

Grateful: Following the incident, Jess updated her Instagram followers telling them she and Allegra were ‘safe and sound’

Following the incident, Jess updated her Instagram followers telling them she and Allegra were ‘safe and sound’.

She added that they were grateful to all the Good Samaritans who helped them, in particular school bus driver Mev – who warned them to get out of the car just in time.

‘Thank you to the thoughtful, fast thinking and kind school bus driver Mev who got us out of the car, called the fire brigade, cleared the road and then stayed to drive us home.

‘Thank you to the police and  paramedics who are angels. And the tow truck driver! And the mums and dads who stopped to help. We love you.’
