‘The Voice has her name all over it,’ the source added.
Indeed, Sophie is no stranger to the singing competition format, having found fame after winning Popstars in 1999.
However, the insider alleged that Sonia Kruger, 54, who currently hosts the reality singing competition, would’t be pleased to welcome Sophie as a co-host.
Insult? ‘Sonia would see that as a complete insult – she’s not there to babysit Sophie,’ the source said

The announcement came after rumours the foursome had been playing ‘hardball’ for more pay and even threatened to quit if they weren’t handed more cash.
‘Channel Nine are keen to have exactly the same coach panel as this year, as they think it is the perfect line-up,’ a source said in part.
‘Nine wanted to sign them up for next year before this year’s series ended. But the feisty coaches are playing hardball.’
They’re back! Channel Nine revealed in October that Boy George, Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian and Kelly Rowland would all be returning for the 2020 season of The Voice
