Well, that didn’t take long! Turns out former Ememrdale star Kelsey-Beth Crossley has the hots for The Voice UK coach, Ricky Wilson.
He may be the new guy on the panel, along with Kylie Minogue, but the pair have gone down a storm, and in more than one way. All the guys want Kylie and all the girls want Ricky, for obvious reasons…
We saw the former Emmerdale star audition on the show a couple of weeks back and Ricky liked what he heard, so much so, he turned around and she ended up in his team. But, she has a little bit of a crush on her coach. It’s like an inappropriate crush at school, isn’t it?
When asked if she fancies Ricky, Kelsey groveled: “Erm… of course, a little bit. I think the whole nation does at the moment” – yeah, we expected the last bit. Those coaching session may be a tad tre awkward.
Going on to reveal what it is like to work with Ricky, Kelsey told new! magazine: “He seemed very enthusiastic. He seemed like he really wanted me on the team”.
It looks like Kelsey has been doing her homework as well as she mentioned how Ricky has a girlfriend, so she will just have to suppress that little crush of hers.
“Oh, I think he does that with everyone! He’s got a girlfriend,” she said when asked if he flirts with her.
Ricky certainly has a few interesting characters on his team so far, so it’ll be great to see how they do in the battle rounds. We’re already half way through the audition process and the coaches have a long way to go before they manage to fill their teams, so they’d better get cracking.
On tonight’s show, 16-year-old Rachael O’Connor is set to wow the judges with her rendition of Clown by Emeli Sande.
The Voice continues this evening at the slightly later time of 7:10pm on BBC One.
