'The Voice' UK: Ricky Wilson Confirms He's Quitting Judging Panel After Series 5, When BBC Show Moves To ITV

Ricky Wilson has revealed that he won’t be joining ‘The Voice’ when it makes the jump to ITV next year.


The Kaiser Chiefs frontman has now confirmed that, after three years with the BBC talent show, the forthcoming series will be his last as a coach.

Explaining his decision, Ricky said he wanted to “bow out gracefully” at the end of the upcoming series, telling The Mirror: “This is my last one anyway… I don’t think ITV would want me. They would want to have a totally new show.”
