She shocked fans were her risqué red carpet look and Sophie Monk also made sure she was the talk of the night at the ARIA awards after taking to the stage with Robert Irwin. 

The late ‘Crocodile Hunter’ Steve Irwin’s son, Bob, appeared on stage holding a python, where he then asked if anyone in the audience would like to join him on-stage to hold the snake.

Spotting the Love Island host in the crowd, Bob asked Sophie to come on-stage, with Sophie jumping out of her seat to make her way to the stage. 

The 15-year-old then put the snake around her shoulders, taking the opportunity to channel Britney Spears, who famously took to the MTV Video Music Awards in New York City in 2001, holding a snake. 

“I feel like I'm the bogan Britney Spears right now,” she said.  “Can I sing? This is probably my only opportunity!”

Sophie then launched into a rendition of Britney Spears’s single, I’m A Slave 4 U, as Robert awkwardly stood beside her. 

However, she soon had enough of the snake, after it turned to face her, with Sophie asking Robert to take him away. 

Sophie showed up at the awards show wearing an extremely daring low-cut dress.

The 39-year-old donned a custom gown by Velani, which featured a square cut neckline and a risque thigh high slit. 

Not one to be outdone on the red carpet, the stunning Love Island presenter brought two leaf blower’s along for the ride with her, so she could look perfectly windswept in snaps from the night.
