The final line-up for the next series of 'The Voice' has been completed with Kaiser Chief's frontman Ricky Wilson being confirmed as the fourth judge.

The 'I Predict A Riot' singer will replace Danny O'Donoghue of The Script who pulled out of the singing competition earlier this year.

Ricky will join existing coaches Will.i.am and Tom Jones as well as new signing Kylie Minogue, who was announced as Jessie J's replacement last week.

A show insider told The Sun: “We’ve got pop, dance, rap and traditional stuff covered with the three we’ve already got.

“So there was a bit of a hole for a rocker. Danny filled that role for the first two years and now it will be Ricky’s turn.

“He’s outspoken, cares passionately about the music scene and basically has some balls.”
