A collective "whaaaaaat?!" is allowed.

"Australia has known and loved Sophie for more than 15 years and has followed the ups and downs of her love life," Ten's chief content officer, Beverley McGarvey, said.

Monk rose to fame in 2000, after starring in Popstars and joining girl group Bardot.

She later released a solo album, starred in movies such as Date Movie and Click, and won The Celebrity Apprentice Australia in 2015.

Fans of the show seem pretty damn excited.
