Claims have emerged that Sophie Monk is expected to be named the host of Channel Nine's exciting new series - and direct competitor to The Bachelor and Bachelorette - Love Island.
Reports that surfaced today have revealed the 37-year-old is trying to 'negotiate her way out' of her current Channel Ten contract in order to host the highly anticipated new series.
A source told The Daily Telegraph, 'It fits with her personality and she's looking for ways of maintaining her profile off the back of Bach.'
The blonde beauty, who was responsible for the highest-ever Bachelor series finale ratings, apparently wants out of her contract.
However, the source claims trying to wriggle herself out of the complicated contract with the network is appearing more troublesome than expected.
Even if Monk can't find a way out of Ten's strict Bachelorette series contract, it's believed the terms expire in just a matter of weeks.
Monk’s Bachelorette finale, in which she chose Stu Laundy over 'stage-five clinger' Jarrod Woodgate, attracted a national viewing audience of more than 1.6 million last week.
But this time it will be the TV star playing cupid.
Based on the incredibly popular UK series, the new show will feature a bunch of male and female suitors sent to an island and forced to couple up. Any islander who remains single is booted out and couples swap partners as the season progresses.
The last couple standing at the end wins with the format compared to The Bachelor meets Geordie Shore meets Big Brother.
