Ricky Wilson is 'OBSESSED' with winning The Voice UK this year, according to his fellow coaches.

The reigning champ is keen to keep a hold of his title and become the only coach to ever win two series.

In a chat with Sport Relief, the coaches all spoke who was the most competitive between them.

"The most competitive coach would be Ricky," declared

Paloma Faith agreed: "I think the most competitive coach this season is Ricky Wilson. I think he’s very strategical.

"He manipulates other coaches so it affects his group well. I know for a fact that he doesn’t really think about what’s right for him – he always thinks about what the public would want at all times. That’s because he wants to win.

"He’s obsessed by winning. He’s a bit of a wolf in sheep’s clothing because of that. He pretends he’s not but I know he is."

As for Ricky himself, he said: "It’s weird – obviously we’re all very competitive because we’re in the music industry which is the biggest competition in the world.

"I don’t tend to enter any competitions because I’m too competitive and I know it riddles me with anxiety of loss. I played scrabble with my girlfriend yesterday. It undid any good work that I’ve done to quell my anxiety over the last five years. She won by 3 points."

Things are looking good for the Kaiser Chiefs star on The Voice UK this year with the likes of favourites Kevin Simm on his live show team.

However it's still all to play for with a month to go until the grand finale.

Meanwhile The Voice coaches -, Paloma Faith, Boy George and Ricky Wilson – are encouraging the Great British public to do their bit and sign up to take part in the Sport Relief Games this weekend.
