The Voice 2013 coaches: Danny O'Donoghue says he'd never date a contestant

Danny O'Donoghue (The Voice UK)

Danny O'Donoghue has denied he's turned The Voice UK into his own dating show!

The Script frontman insisted his apparent flirting with some of the contestants - and their friends and family - during the auditions were nothing more than friendliness.

And the singer insisted he would never date a contestant on the show anyway, although he was still up for seeing one his fans!

Danny said: "I'm not dating any contestants and nor do I want to. Some people have made out that I'm using the show as my own personal Take Me Out, to meet women. It's ridiculous. They are blind auditions. How am I supposed to see them, unless it's Blind Date?"

Speaking ahead of this weekend's second live show, the Hall of Fame hitmaker continued: "It came about because I said I would date a fan. There are so many fans of The Script that I think I'd be cutting my arm off if I said I wouldn't date one. "

Danny added: "Fans, yes; contestants, no, because I know how many column inches it would get!"

The Voice UK concludes this weekend on Saturday night with the grand final.
