Last month The Voice AU revealed who will be on the judging panel this season and this morning they have followed up with another exciting announcement – the co-hosts.

Sonia Kruger and Darren McMullen have been given the honours, adding plenty of experience to the lineup!

After welcoming her first child last month, Sonia has agreed to co-host the season, announcing the exciting news on Instagram.

 “I’ve been a fan of the show since it started and I reckon I’ve watched just about every episode that has ever gone to air,” Sonia told

“I can’t wait to be front and centre co-hosting with my new buddy Darren. He’s an A Grade performer, but he’s now on my D list alongside Darryl (Somers), Daniel (MacPherson) and David (Campbell). All dashing, dynamic and damn fine dudes!”


As for her co-host Darren, he told that he was happy to be sharing the role with Sonia. 

“I get paid the same amount of money to do half the work,” he joked.

“When is that ever going to be a bad thing?”

“There’s a really good camaraderie between me and Sonia and we always have a laugh so if that translates into The Voice that’ll be great. Plus, if there’s any stuff ups I’m not solely to blame now!”

While there is no confirmation from channel nine on when this season will air in 2015, we can’t wait!
