The Voice 2016: Lily Allen to become a coach? Stevie McCrorie reckons she'd be good!

The Voice UK winner Stevie McCrorie reckons Lily Allen would make for a great coach on the show.

With rumours that Rita Ora may not be back for a second series, Stevie was asked who he thought could join the line up.

He told DigitalSpy at the BAFTAs: "There's plenty of amazing artists out there that have been in the industry a long time - and great characters who could fill any of [the coaches'] shoes," adding that Lily was a name that had "always popped up in my head".

The coaches for The Voice 2016 - which begins filming later this year - have not yet been confirmed.

However, Will.i.am, Ricky Wilson and Sir Tom Jones have all said they want to be back.

It leaves only newbie coach Rita Ora who has always avoided the question, but Sir Tom hopes she too will return.

“The feedback I get from people is great. I don’t get any negativity whatsoever. People tell me they love the show," the Welsh legend said earlier this year. “I even get kids who know who I am now. They know me because of The Voice and that’s a flattering feeling.

“If possible it would be great to have the same panel again next year. I like working with Rita a lot. We’ve become friends, we gel.”

It was reported that Rita had been approached to join The X Factor panel but decided to snub Simon Cowell to instead focus on her new album.
