Ricky Wilson unsure about Voice UK return

Wilson: "I haven't been asked yet"

Kaiser Chiefs frontman and The Voice UK judge Ricky Wilson is yet to receive a phone call from BBC bosses to ask him back for another series of the reality singing competition.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the 36-year-old star said: "I haven't been asked yet, for a start. People keep telling me rumours of who might join the panel and I'm not sure there'd be a space for me. It would definitely depend on the coaches."

Commenting on Kylie Minogue's announcement that she won't be returning to the judging panel, Ricky added: "It would be weird doing it without Kylie. She helped get me over the edge.

"Kylie, Tom Jones and will.i.am were a huge part of the experience. If I do it again I will definitely miss her. I'm due to have lunch with The Voice bosses at some point."

The I Predict a Riot hitmaker also spoke about returning to the stage with the Kaiser Chiefs in February 2015, saying: "Touring for us is different - my preparation is a couple of beers, then I run on. There are less costume changes at a Kaiser Chiefs gig than a Kylie one. And a hell of a lot less feather boas!"
