The Voice UK's Paloma Faith "p***ed" that there's only one woman on the panel

The Voice UK 2016 - Paloma Faith

Paloma Faith has said she's "p***ed" that there's only ever been the one woman on The Voice UK panel.

In five series, The Voice UK has always had a trio of male coaches to the one female coach, who have changed almost every season.

Jessie J began in the 'third seat' followed by Kylie Minogue then Rita Ora and most recently of course, Paloma.

Despite there being a trio of male judges, they've actually changed fewer times with Ricky Wilson swapping out for Danny O'Donoghue back in 2014 and this year Sir Tom Jones leaving for Boy George.

Speaking to the Daily Express newspaper, Paloma lamented what she has been told is a "formatting thing".

The Upside Down hitmaker explained: “I think they should change it. They said it was a formatting thing, they keep telling me. That’s what I’ve been told, I don’t know.”

She added: “I think you should ask them, I’m really p****d off about it, I think there should be two women.

"Two women and two men is equal, right?” she added.

Of course with this being the last series to air on the BBC there's not that much can be done now, but it's perhaps something for ITV to think about when they take control of the show next year.

They channel has yet confirm any plans for its version although it's been reported that Paloma may NOT be invited to reprise her spot in the spinning red chairs, with sources claiming she's "too BBC", whatever that means.

For now The Voice UK returns Saturday night on BBC One with the LIVE SHOWS!
