It’s been previously claimed that Sophie Monk has been trying to distance herself from band Bardot, which formed on television series Popstars back in 2000.
And when the 40-year-old was revealed as Dragonfly on Monday’s episode of The Masked Singer, her former bandmate Tiffani Wood decided to call her out.
Sharing footage of Sophie on-screen to her Instagram Stories, the 42-year-old found it ironic that she would ‘have the time’ to appear on the show, but not to do a reunion tour.
‘I thought Sophie was too busy for a Bardot reunion. I mean… she’s wearing a dragonfly costume, singing on a stage, while I have to try and get six kids to sleep before the show comes on,’ Tiffani penned online alongside a laughing face emoji.
Tiffani also appeared to take a swipe at Sophie’s friendship with judge Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, saying: ‘Think I’ll go one step further and predict a new single release.
‘Coming to a radio station near you and played by her bestie Jackie O first.’
Fellow Bardot bandmate Sally Polihronas looked to have agreed with Tiffani, reposting her Story alongside the text ‘BOOM’.
Back in April, Tiffani told the Courier Mail that Sophie’s been trying to distance herself from the band and ‘doesn’t like any association’.
‘Sophie doesn’t like the association with Bardot. Anything that’s tagged with Bardot on her [Instagram] page she deletes,’ she said.
‘A fan pointed that out to me, I’ve been blocked by Sophie on Instagram, so I used another profile and had a look and she’s deleted most references to Bardot, which is where she came from.’
‘Chris Hemsworth still talks about starting on Home and Away. Kylie Minogue honours Neighbours and Charlene; she may not have the same career without that. To me, it’s just logical to be grateful about how you got your start,’ Tiffani said.
The group also made an appearance on The Morning Show that month, but Sophie was absent from the band’s lineup, despite being one of the original members.
When asked about her whereabouts, Tiffani revealed she hadn’t spoken to Sophie since the group’s split in 2002.
‘I haven’t spoken to her in 18 years. As far as I know, the answer [to joining a Bardot reunion] is no. I don’t know why. I think she is doing bigger and better things, maybe. I’m probably the wrong person to ask,’ she said.
According to The Daily Telegraph’s Confidential in May, Sophie’s representative said she would not be taking part in a reunion tour.
