The Voice Guy steps up to the plate – look out Delta!

...but his wife Jules is warn­ing him to steer clear of his for­mer flame Delta Goodrem!

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

He shot to fame win­ning the in­au­gu­ral Aus­tralian Idol in 2003, and now Woman’s Day can ex­clu­sively re­veal Guy Se­bas­tian is about to be an­nounced as a coach on The Voice.

Guy, 37, will re­place Joe Jonas in the fourth red chair next year, along­side re­turn­ing coaches Boy Ge­orge, Delta Goodrem and Kelly Rowland.

Hav­ing ap­peared as a judge on five sea­sons of The X Fac­tor, Guy is the per­fect fit for the high-pres­sure role.

“He ticks every box,” says our in­sider. “He’s pop­u­lar, a Sony mu­sic artist and most im­por­tantly, af­ford­able! Fans slammed [Nine’s] de­ci­sion to cast three in­ter­na­tional coaches last year, so they were keen to fill the seat lo­cally, and no one mea­sures up to Guy.”

And the cov­eted role is some­thing Guy has been eye­ing up for a while.

“Fi­nally he’s been given the green light,” says a source.

But there’s one per­son who isn’t happy about Guy’s new gig – his wife of 10 years Jules, who has warned him to stay clear of his ex Delta.

“Jules is con­cerned about Guy work­ing so closely with an old flame,” spills a source close to the pair.

“While she is ex­cited for him and wants him to ex­cel in his ca­reer, she’s find­ing it hard to rec­on­cile the fact that her hubby will be work­ing along­side Delta, some­one he’s ad­mit­ted to dat­ing in the past.” In­deed, the Bat­tle

Scars singer shocked fans in 2015 when he re­vealed he went on a “cou­ple of dates” with Delta.

“A long time ago... I dated my [hall] pass, be­lieve it or not,” he said on The Kyle &

Jackie O Show. “Hers [Jules’] was Heath Ledger, mine was Delta Goodrem. And I dated Delta for a few months – no one knew about it.”

Shortly af­ter, Delta, 33, also opened up about their brief ro­mance, telling fans Guy is a “good kisser”.

Adding to Jules’ woes is the fact Delta “has been gush­ing about how happy she is to be work­ing with Guy”.

While Delta and Guy’s re­la­tion­ship is purely pla­tonic these days, sources say Jules is pos­si­bly wor­ried old sparks may be reignited with the pair work­ing so closely to­gether.

“Ev­ery­one knows The Voice is a huge com­mit­ment to take on,” says our in­sider. “Jules can’t help but worry.”

The singers dated while Guy was on a year-long split from Jules.
