In a bizarre way of bonding, the pair scour the web for nasty messages together.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, Ricky explained: “It took me two years to think it [The Voice UK] was a good idea.
“That’s the problem with the ‘alternative’ world – you think of all that can go wrong not the one huge benefit.
“Some people would think I’m a ginger c**k even if I ended all war.”
And Ricky reckons reading the messages left by Twitter trolls help keep his feet on the ground.
He joked: “I have my hair cut by a barber. It’s £8, I usually give ‘em 10. I’m a flash b*d like that.”
The Kaiser Chiefs frontman ruled out ever launching a full-time career move into telly, branding the BBC One series little more than something to get him “out of the house.”
The rock singer explained: “The TV sits in the corner of everybody’s room. If you wanna get heard, get on TV. It gets me out of the house.”
