It's the end of an era for The Voice fans! Longtime coach Delta Goodrem, who has been part of the show since season one, has confirmed she won't be back when the series jumps ship to Channel Seven next year.

Sharing the news in a lengthy Instagram post on Sunday night, the Solid Gold singer revealed the time has come for her to cut ties with the show and move on to her next chapter.

"What a ride we had red chair !" she wrote.

"One of the most powerful gifts of my nine year journey on The Voice has been finding my own voice amongst all of it. The heart, the dreams people shared, the exceptional talent and the constant inspiration of being around music - so many magic moments that I am so proud of and I am truly grateful for it all.

"Wishing everyone all the best for a great season ahead. #TeamDelta lives on in my heart and now onto a very exciting new chapter."

The Voice won't be the same.

In the post, Delta also revealed that she had started her own production company, Atled Productions (presumably named as such because it is Delta spelt backwards) and will continue to work with Channel Nine.

"My team and I are excited to partner with Nine on this new chapter and I'm so proud to share with you our first project, Christmas With Delta. We've got some great things in development that I can't wait to share with you soon!"

"As we fast approach the end of this most unpredictable year, I reflect on the silver lining for me, personally - pushing myself creatively and trying new things. I am coming for you 2021 and I couldn't be more excited."

Who will be turning in the big red chair next?

Earlier this year it was revealed that Channel Seven had poached the successful singing show from its longtime home at Channel Nine.

Returning to the helm is former host Sonia Kruger, who is replacing Darren McMullen and Renee Bargh.

The new coaching line-up is yet to be revealed, however it is unlikely international coaches Boy George and Kelly Rowland will be back. Although Delta's return is now ruled out, Guy Sebastian is potentially coming back, with his brother recently telling WHO that he's "99% sure Guy is locked in".
