The Voice's Gavin Rossdale Brushes Off Criticism Of His Appointment As Coach

Many people questioned the Bush frontman's credentials.

Gavin Rossdale has responded to suggestions he was miscast as a coach on ‘The Voice UK’.

The Bush frontman was met with a lukewarm reception when he was unveiled as a new panellist on ITV’s version of the talent show, ahead of recording the auditions last year.

And while he’s gone on to form a strong team on the current series, many have still questioned his credentials as a judge - something which Gavin doesn’t have much time for.

It was also claimed Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am threatened to quit the show when it was revealed Gavin was joining.

He was said to have felt loyalty to Gavin’s ex-wife Gwen Stefani, who he acrimoniously split from in 2015.

‘The Voice’ continues on Saturday (11 March) at 8.30pm on ITV.
