Annie Lennox is reportedly in the running to become a coach on The Voice UK next year.

BBC bosses are understood to be after at least one new coach after Jessie J quit the show, while they may also need a replacement for Sir Tom Jones.

The 71-year-old said he did want to return, but only if he approved of the other coaches!

But we're not sure he'll have any problems with Annie.

According to The Sun, producers hope that Annie's years of experience will make her a good signing alongside the other coaches.

A source told the newspaper today: “Annie would be a great signing. She really knows her eggs.

“Last year’s judges were great but it would be nice to inject some new blood into the panel too.”

The source added: “Last year Sir Tom proved that experience really counts and Annie’s got that in spades. She’s not afraid to give an opinion either.”

Both Black Eyed Peas star and The Script frontman Danny O'Donoghue are expected to be returning next year.

Sir Tom Jones was the first winning coach back in June, with Leanne Mitchell topping the vote in the final.

Her debut album is due out later this year.
