The Voice UK star Danny O’Donoghue has said he’s confident that the new BBC one series has what it takes to beat Britain's Got Talent when both shows go head to head on Saturday nights.

The reality programmes will be battling it out for viewers on the weekends when they both kick off on March 24.

And Danny says that The Voice's all star line up - which includes Sir Tom Jones, Jessie J and Will.i.am - will be enough to overcome the power of Simon Cowell.

“The quality of everything is as good as it can be," Script star Danny said. “No expense has been spared…from the set to all the production.

“I’m so confident, happy and excited about The Voice I don’t think we need to worry about what other shows are doing.”

31-year-old rocker Danny also hit back at critics saying he wasn't well known enough, explaining: “The BBC have done a great job of picking a team of perfect professionals who are well trained in what they do.

“The Script are hugely successful and I’ve made a career of singing so I think I deserve to be there.

“The quality of talent on the show is just unbelievable. Everybody who is on it can sing, there are no novelty acts.”

The Voice UK starts on March 24 on BBC1.
