Nine has denied a report that claimed Sophie Monk is confirmed to host Love Island.
Yesterday NW magazine reported online, “We can all stop crying that Sophie Monk has disappeared from our TV screens since The Bachelorette wrapped, because NW can confirm that she has officially signed on as the host of Channel Nine’s new dating show Love Island!”
An unnamed friend told the mag, “Soph struggled to get out of her contract after the Bachelorette, but she did it – and good on her!”“She’s going to kill it as the host!”
However a Nine spokesperson told TV Tonight, “Nothing confirmed.”
That could mean a deal is not quite signed off, or possibly that it isn’t even under consideration. I would tip the former, but for now Monk is not confirmed.
