Sunrise host David 'Kochie' Koch has revealed the brutal reality of reporting on the Queen's death in the UK.

Sharing a number of photos on his Instagram Stories, Kochie showed viewers just how exhausting the late nights and gruelling hours were, both for presenters and crew.

"An extraordinary 12 days ... A highlight of my career. And these legends made it all possible," he captioned a photo of the crew.

"But life on the road is NOT as glamorous as you may think."

He then shared a photo of a Channel 7 cameraman asleep on a number of lined-up Eskys, before posting another of a Sunrise crew member asleep on the ground with a jacket over their head.

"Sleep when you can," Kochie wrote.

In another photo of his co-host Nat Barr stretching her head back, Kochie captioned the image: "The best co-host ... smart, witty, normal."

"Sitting on stools for so long stuffed Nat's back and neck and this was an exercise from the osteo."
