There’s no denying that Sonia Kruger is one of the nation’s most loved TV personalities.

In addition to hosting The Voice and Today Extra, the star has fronted a number of other popular shows including Dancing with the Stars and Big Brother.

While she’s 52-years-old, the bubbly blonde said that she often gets mistaken for another Australian star much younger than herself.

Appearing on Friday’s Today Extra, the mother-of-one claimed that people often think she’s Sophie Monk.

Monk is a former singer who rose to fame in the girl group Bardot, before appearing in a string of Hollywood movies.

Her most recent stint was appearing on the Australian version of dating show The Bachelorette and she’s set to host reality show Love Island in the new year.

Talking about Monk’s rise in popularity, Kruger said that many people confuse her with the 37-year-old.

“I get that all the time.”

Monk then suggested that she gets mistaken for Kruger: “I’ve had it before, too. I’ve got Sonia and I’m like, ‘I’m not as smart as her’.”

Kruger admitted that she’s not as young as Monk but that she’ll happily take the compliment.

“On occasion, I have felt the need to pretend to be you,” Kruger added.

She explained that Monk’s popularity during The Bachelorette made her feel like she had something to live up to.
