Ricky Wilson WILL be on The Voice UK on ITV... on one condition

Ricky Wilson

Ricky Wilson has suggested he could come back to The Voice UK next year on ITV.

The Kaiser Chiefs frontman previously declared he would be quitting the show but now says one thing would draw him back: Cash.

Ricky said last week in a chat with The Sun newspaper that he'd return for £1 million while in tonight's Alan Carr: Chatty Man, clarified the comments.

"I always [think], 'I'm not going to go back and do The Voice when it comes back, this is my last one'," he explained.

"But I always have to think about my dad, and if ITV offered me a load of money, I would say to my dad, 'I didn't want to do it because I didn't think it was right' and he would go, 'You f**king what? Do it! And pay off your mortgage.'

"So I might do it, if it would pay off my mortgage, yeah. You have to think about these things."

This year's fifth series of The Voice UK is the last to air on BBC before moving over to rival channel ITV from 2017.

And while he may have only joined the panel for this latest run, long-time fan Boy George is said to see the swap.

"It's a brilliant show, and I think we are all kind of gutted that it is leaving the BBC," he told Alan Carr. "I'm gutted it's leaving the BBC because it's been so brilliant. I wish they had kept it."

Alan Carr's Chatty Man airs tonight on Channel 4 from 10PM.

The Voice UK airs from Saturday night at 7PM with its live shows.
