An Australian radio station has told a woman live on air that her husband's details are part of the leaked data from the affair facilitating website Ashley Madison.

NOVA DJs Ryan "Fitzy" Fitzgerald and Michael "Wippa" Wipfli announced on their show that they had access to the database of almost 32 million names that was leaked onto the 'dark web' yesterday.

That prompted a woman know by the alias 'Jo' to call and give them details about her husband that they could use to search that subscriber list of the site that hooks up married people for affairs.

The woman had said her husband had been acting suspiciously of late and when news of the details being leaked appeared on the news he "went a bit funny".

The DJs then put the details of the man into the database.

“We’re putting him in right now and his details have revealed that he’s actually on the website Jo.”

The woman, who was stunned by the news replied: “Are you freaking kidding me.

"These websites are disgusting”, before abruptly hanging up.

The hosts immediately regretted their actions, saying: “I don’t know if we should have done that. This hasn’t left me with a good feeling. What a horrible situation to be in.

"I'm sorry that happened, Jo. I feel a bit bad."
