The Voice UK judges: Kylie Minogue to get huge pay rise to keep her

Kylie Minogue (The Voice 2014)

Kylie Minogue is in line for a huge pay rise as the BBC bid to get her back on The Voice UK next year.

It was confirmed at the weekend that the BBC had commissioned a further two series of the show securing its future on air until at least 2016.

Charlotte Moore, controller of BBC One, commented: “It’s been fantastic to see The Voice return in top form to kick start BBC One’s brilliant year so far.

“The new line-up has really connected with audiences and I look forward to it returning to the channel next year.”

But getting that line up back could cost the BBC some big fees with Kylie previously hinting that she would be leaving the show.

The Daily Star Sunday reports that the Aussie popstar is due for talks with producers about a second series this week.

“This is their big chance to persuade her to come back next year," a source told the tabloid.
"It’s make or break.

“They’re so pleased Kylie has agreed to meet with them. It means there is a chance she will go for it.”

Kylie previously claimed that schedule clashes would prevent her from taking part in a second series and also branded the show "too taxing".

However a big fat cheque may change her mind.

"They are going to go all out to get Kylie to sign up," the insider continued. "A pay rise is almost certain.

"And they’ll happily ­rearrange the filming dates to ­accommodate her.

“She has admitted finding it tough to choose between acts but hopefully they can assure her it won’t be as hard second time around.”
