The Voice has been recommissioned for a third series on BBC One but bosses are already facing challenges over who will return and who won’t next year.
Insiders have told The Daily Mail that Will.i.am, Danny O’Donoghue, Tom Jones and Jessie J are planning to issue bosses with an ultimatum, which will state that they will only return together, as a foursome, or not at all. However bosses are said to be keen to add new faces to the lineup.
A source told the newspaper the stars have agreed that if they don’t all get offered contracts, then they will all walk away from the singing show, however it leaves producers with a tough decision as they’re apparently considering replacing Jessie J and Tom Jones.
It’s said that Jess has proved ‘unpopular’ with the public, while many believe that Tom looks ‘bored’ much of the time.
An insider said:
‘The producers know the show needs a real shake-up.
‘Jessie is incredibly unpopular with viewers and Tom looks bored the majority of the time. Something has to change.’
However Sir Tom has insisted:
‘The four of us make a great team — one without the other wouldn’t work.’
Danny told The Sun that he hasn’t been invited back yet by the show bosses. He said:
“We’ve been told another series has been commissioned but we have not been approached — so I’ll leave it until we’ve all been asked until I answer.”
“I have thought about next year. If you are having a good time doing something I don’t see why you’d want to stop. I’d be up for coming back. I like hanging out with Jessie and Dan and Tom’s company.”
