Good news for fans of “The Voice” Australia

celebrity coach Delta Goodrem – she’ll soon be back on television, after landing a role on the Aussie comedy series “House Husbands” season 5.

The 31-year-old singer was last seen in the “The Voice” Australia

2016 with other celebrities Jessie J, Ronan Keating, and Joel and Benji Madden. She took to Instagram to announce her small screen comeback. “You heard right. Joining the family at House Husbands, back to the tv screen in [your] lounge rooms on Channel 9 – my character is Izzy Dreyfus a reading recovery teacher (with some spice.) Super excited,” Goodrem wrote.

Goodrem’s last acting gig on TV ended nearly 13 years ago, when she quit her role as Nina Tucker on Network Eleven’s “Neighbours.” She first appeared on the Aussie soap in June 2002, but had to leave the show after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. When her health got better, she reprised her role in 2004 and was last seen in March 2015 for the show’s 30th anniversary.

While in “Neighbours,” Goodrem played a quintessential girl-next-door, her role in “House Husbands” would be more complicated, one that “excites” and “frightens” everyone in the series, according to a report by Mamamia.

“Riding in on her cafe racer motorbike, brilliant, beautiful and slightly tomboyish Izzy both excites and frightens everyone in the House Husbands world and her audacious attitude is instrumental in diverting a threat to the Nepean South community that none of them see coming,” Network Nine said, according to Mamamia.

“House Husbands” follow the stories of four men who are left in charge to take care of their households and their families. The comedy series started filming in Melbourne last May, and its fifth season is expected to air later this year. Goodrem joins new cast members Hugh Sheridan, Roy Billing and Nanyce Hayes. “House Husbands” stars Gary Stewart, Firass Dirani, Rhys Muldoon, Julia Morris, Natalie Saleeba, Jane Allsop, Louise Siversen and Denis Scott.
