The single co-hosts took over the reins of the reality singing show following the departure of Sonia Kruger.

As the show’s founding host, returning to The Voice has been a homecoming for Darren.

However, the set insider reveals that the Scottish-born presenter’s cheeky antics were what contributed to his departure in the first place.

“[H]is ego! That is why Nine got rid of him last time,” reveals the insider. “He wouldn’t behave with publicity so Nine eventually … sent him packing, replacing him with Sonia.”

And it seems not much has changed.

“Darren is very confident when it comes to the ladies!,” says our insider. “He is a very naughty boy.”
