‘He stormed off at one point!’ Sonia Kruger admits singer Boy George acts like a ‘diva’ on set of The Voice
The eighth season of The Voice Australia is set to premiere on Channel Nine on Sunday.
And Sonia Kruger has admitted that sparks do indeed fly between the coaches, and it is Boy George who is the catalyst.
‘Right off the blocks on the first day of filming, George was just fired up!’ Sonia, 53, told OK! magazine on Thursday.

‘He storms off at one point.
‘There’s a lot that goes on among the coaches this year that’s for sure!’ she added.
According to the TV presenter, although George is known for his ‘diva’ behaviour, he did have a good reason to be upset.
The mother-of-one explained that the English singer took something another coach said the wrong way, which caused a major rift between the panel.

Meanwhile, it has been rumoured that all the judges could be facing the axe as there won’t be another season of the show after this year.
New Idea has claimed that the show’s bosses are already predicting a considerable ratings drop.

Insiders said The Voice will suffer a blow in ratings that will barely match up to the numbers it used to bring in its ‘glory day’ years.
They fear that a ratings drop could lead to The Voice losing its celebrity coaches as the lack of viewing figures ‘cannot justify’ the salaries paid out to the stars involved.
‘Ratings wise, they are expecting 800,000 max… obviously, the outrageous coaches’ salaries cannot justify the ratings numbers,’ sources claimed to the magazine.
They added that bosses have ‘dumbed down promos’ in a last-ditch effort’ to boost ratings, but the coaches aren’t on board with the new ‘slapstick’ approach.
Channel Nine declined to comment when contacted by Daily Mail Australia.
