Ricky Wilson says he'll be BACK on The Voice UK, on one condition

The Voice - Episode 1

Ricky Wilson has opened up about quitting The Voice UK.

The Kaiser Chiefs frontman was a coach on the series for three years but is not staying when the show moves to ITV in 2017.

Although speaking last week, Ricky said he would be up for a comeback if the money was right.

Explaining his exit, Ricky said: "When they announced it was moving to ITV I decided not to go with it. I did a Mary Berry before Mary Berry did!

"Of course I'll miss it. I did the first series to sell a record, but the second and third I did for pure enjoyment. I'll be jealous when it's back on, but I'm pleased Tom Jones is back. He's one of my favourite people"

Ricky confessed he would say yes to another series if he was offered "loads of money".

"I always think, would my dad call me a d**khead if I turned down that sort of money?' No one would believe me if I said I wouldn't accept loads of money, because obviously I would!" Ricky admitted openly.

Meanwhile, Ricky said he was a big fan of The Voice's rival show The X Factor and its boss Simon Cowell.

"I'm not a snob. The X Factor is like McDonald's - it's sugary and salty and I love it," the singer told Star magazine. "I like watching Simon every week - I respect him. He knows what he's doing."

The Voice UK will air on ITV next year.
