Brothers and Channel 9 workmates Karl and Peter Stefanovic have apologised after they were caught complaining about their colleagues on a speakerphone call while in an Uber.

Their Uber driver allegedly secretly recorded their conversation and his account of it is set to be printed in the next issue of New Idea magazine.

Karl Stefanovic issued an apology to The Sunday Telegraph, saying he and his brother were "guilty of having a spray after a Sunday barbeque".

"We are sorry. I was angry with myself at first that I could be so stupid."

It is believed the brothers complained about Channel 9 executives, as well as fellow host Georgie Gardner and entertainment reporter Richard Wilkins.

"For the record, Georgie Gardner is killing it. She's the best thing to happen to the show in years," Karl said.

Peter Stefanovic also apologised via The Sunday Telegraph.

"I did a silly thing and feel awful for any embarrassment I've brought to my colleagues, who I deeply respect.

"I have spoken directly to the people involved and have offered my sincerest apologies as I have been raised to do: do something wrong, apologise and try to move on.

"It is embarrassing to not only get myself into this situation but also my big brother and the network.

"There's nothing quite like having all your insecurities out there for people to see and read.

He says he gave the Uber driver involved a one-star rating only because there is no zero-star option.
