The Voice 2013: Filming thrown into “chaos” as Danny O’Donoghue falls ill & gets interior design tips from BBC head office!

by Lynn Rowlands


There are two stories making The Voice news this morning, with the first being that coach and Script front man Danny O’Donoghue has had to pull out of filming for the show due to illness, and the second that his fellow coach wants his home to look like the BBC’s head office!

More on Will’s odd interior design in a moment, but first, of Danny’s illness, he apparently contracted a virus of some kind and has been ordered to rest by his doctor.

However, his illness has thrown filming of the new series of The Voice into “chaos” according to an insider, and it could potentially affect The Script’s forthcoming tour.

Yesterday, all the coaches were to film a new promo for the upcoming series, but as Danny was absent, it’s understood that the other three – Jessie J, Tom Jones and – went ahead and filmed their segments without him. Danny’s will be added at a later date.

A show insider told TV Biz, “The coaches have all been working really hard on the new series in order to make it better than last year.

“Danny also has commitments with his band but it has obviously all got too much and he has been struck down by a nasty bug.

“Doctors have advised him to rest and he doesn’t know when he’ll be able to return to filming yet.”

The paper adds, “The coaches have already filmed the blind auditions and the battle rounds, and are about to start recording a new stage — the knockouts.”

Back now to Will’s odd interior design plans, and he apparently “stunned” workers at the BBC’s New Broadcasting House in central London by taking a “bizarre interest in the building’s fixtures and fittings.” jacket

He reportedly wandered around taking pictures with his iPhone while remarking how “dope” the building is.

An onlooker told The Sun, “ came in for meetings with top brass so obviously everyone had a nose.

“He seemed to be really excited about how everything looked and kept taking pictures and saying he was going to send them to his designer.

“It gave us a bit of a boost thinking we were working somewhere so cool wanted to replicate it.”

Well, who wouldn’t want their home to look like an office?

Here’s a look at Will and Danny in action…
