Ricky Wilson has been announced as the second new ‘coach’ to join the next series of ‘The Voice’ when it returns in January, following the recent announcement that Kylie Minogue would also join the programme. Yes, Ricky Wilson off of the Kaiser Chiefs. He replaces The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue as the person on the panel whose presence you’re slightly confused about.

Announcing the news, Wilson said: “Who doesn’t want to spend their Saturday night with Kylie Minogue? I spent last winter yelling at ‘The Voice’, and both Sir Tom Jones and were total superstars. I’m just lucky the Kaiser Chiefs have rubber stamped my temporary loan”.

Claiming that Wilson is one of the UK’s “great frontmen”, the BBC’s Controller of Entertainment Commissioning, Mark Linsey, added: “He knows all about performance and will complement the rest of the coaching line-up perfectly”.

As previously reported, in addition to Kylie and Ricky, new on the next series of the show will also be recently appointed co-hosts Emma Willis and Marvin Humes.
