The Voice 2014 judges: Ricky Wilson is loving all the male attention!

Ricky Wilson (The Voice 2014)

The Voice UK's Ricky Wilson has revealed he's become a bit of a gay icon.

And the Kaiser Chiefs frontman is loving every minute of it.

While the hunky rocker has plenty of female fans, he explained this week how most of his supporters are actually guys.

“I get a lot more attention from men than women," he told the Metro newspaper this week. “They say, ‘You’re hot. I wouldn’t mind a go on you’, which I find a compliment.”

The rock singer has gone under a rather dramatic makeover for the BBC One show and hopes to continue after setting himself a goal to make into Attitude's 100 hunkiest guys list.

"There was a load of us on holiday last year and we were all sitting around the pool," Ricky recalled. “Someone had brought the Attitude issue with the 100 hunkiest men. I was reading through it and said ‘I’m going to do whatever it takes to get in this magazine next year.’

"If I scraped in at 100, I’d be fine."

Tomorrow night sees the first live show of the series and yesterday Ricky took to Twitter to declare that his team was ready to fight.

He tweeted: "We're ready. Haven't heard the other teams yet, but I find it hard to believe they can beat this lot."

The Voice UK airs this Saturday night on BBC One from 6:45PM.
