The Voice 2014 judges: Ricky Wilson reveals bandmates hate the show

Ricky Wilson (The Voice 2014)

The Voice 2014 coach Ricky Wilson has revealed that some of his Kaiser Chief bandmates aren't exactly fans of the show.

The rocker previously admitted that he had gone against his band's wishes when signing up for the BBC One series last year.

Ricky said today: "Some of them love it, but some of them don’t like it so much.

“But the great thing is people want to talk to us now.”

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper today, he added: “We’ve got a new album coming out on the 31st of March – around the time of the live shows – which is a great coincidence!"

Ricky previously rather bluntly admitted that he only agreed to join the show's panel in order to get more publicity for himself and the band.

He told the Absolute Radio breakfast show last month: “It’s on TV, in the corner of everyone’s room, and at the risk of sounding vulgar, I kind of want as many people to hear this record as possible because I’m really proud of it.

“I can say to you that I did it because I wanted to give back to the talent of the future, but I’ve also got a record coming out!”

The Voice UK continues this weekend on BBC One.
