The 40-year-old presenter, who has hosted the reality TV show for two seasons, removed details from her profile just days after Sophie ditched her long standing agent Titus Day for a rival management team.

According to The Daily Telegraph’s Confidential, Love Island is yet to be renewed by the Nine Network after after season two suffered consistently low ratings last year.

Although, in a statement to Confidential, a Nine spokesperson said no official announcements have been made.

“We haven’t made any announcements about Love Island. Sophie is a much loved part of the Nine family,” the spokesman said.

However, the fact that Sophie’s bio previously read “Channel 9 host @loveislandau” but this has now been deleted is sure to worry fans of the controversial dating show.

The TV host has been making some career changes and was said to have blindsided her agent Day last week after his “good mate” and fellow celebrity agent, Sean Anderson took to social media this week to announce he had signed Sophie this week.

Anderson’s 22 Management Instagram page shared a photograph of Monk alongside the caption: “We’re thrilled to announce the very talented @sophiemonk has signed exclusively with 22! Welcome to the family.”

And according to Day, he had no idea that Sophie had signed to Anderson’s agency.

Confidential reports that The Bachelorette star “went completely cold on Day in recent weeks,” and hadn’t heard a word from Sophie, lately despite having managed her for over a decade.

“To say I am shocked and disappointed is an understatement. Sean and I were good friends for 20 years until he did this to me,” Day told the publication, explaining he received a letter from the singer’s lawyer out of the blue ending their agreement.

Meanwhile, Anderson claimed Sophie approached him mid-January to enquire about representation.

“I met with Sophie for the first time last week and she said she was looking for a new manager after finishing up with Titus in December. I am really happy she has signed with me at 22,” he said.

Both agents represent come of Australia’s biggest stars, with Day having managed the likes of Guy Sebastian, television host Grant Denyer, model Lara Worthington and swimmer Stephanie Rice in the past. And Anderson currently counting Jennifer Hawkins, actor Jodi Anasta, TV personality Georgia Love and blogger Pia Muehlenbeck as clients.
