I've always thought of 'The Voice UK' as the runt of the reality family (yes, I even found 'Dancing On Ice' marginally more entertaining). Its desperation to be taken seriously, coupled with its holier-than-thou approach to the talent show format, made it a complete turn off for me. But come Saturday night, I decided to give it a chance, mainly to see if it had finally shed its nicey-nicey BBC image.
Step forward Mo Adeniran. The very first week of the new series on ITV and a star has fallen into their laps. The BBC must be secretly kicking themselves that no-one like Mo had deigned to audition while on their channel. Despite all The X Factor's misgivings, the show certainly knew how to launch a star and it seems that The Voice UK now has one of its own.
