The Voice UK: Emeli Sande, Robbie Williams tipped to join panel

Emeli Sande and Robbie Williams are amongst the favourites to join The Voice UK next year.

Following the news yesterday that reigning winning mentor Danny O'Donoghue is to leave the show, following in the footstep of Jessie J, bookies are now taking bets upon their potential replacements.

While there's already been plenty of names linked to the show, Ladbrokes has marked Emeli Sande (5/1) and Robbie Williams (6/1) as the favourites to take over the two free sports on the show, followed closely by former Voice battle assistant and guest performer Paloma Faith (7/1) and former X Factor star Olly Murs (8/1).

Rod Stewart is chalked up at 12/1 to join up with his pal Sir Tom Jones, or it's a 10/1 chance that Lemar goes back to his roots but on the other side as a judge.

Meanwhile, with only two judges left on the show its future is arguably in jeopardy and it's now odds-on at 4/6 that The Voice is axed before the end of 2014.

"Another one bites the dust, and the odds suggest it's only a matter of time before the show's axed,"
Ladbrokes spokesperson Jessica Bridge commented yesterday. "Emeli and Robbie are the hot favourites, but the BBC have got a tough task on their hands trying to fill the two vacancies."
