The Voice UK: Gavin Rossdale 'axed' and McFly’s Danny Jones could replace him

Gavin Rossdale

Gavin Rossdale has reportedly been dropped from The Voice UK On ITV.

The Bush frontman is said to have been dropped for the coaches line up for next year's series on the channel.

And The Voice Kids coach McFly’s Danny Jones is being tipped to replace him, The Sun on Sunday newspaper reports.

"Gavin was great to work with during the series, but the bosses just felt he wasn’t right in the end," a source explained today. “He didn’t make much of an impact, and they want someone with serious spark and charisma.

“So they have taken the decision that he won’t be back next year.

“Danny is currently one of the favourites to replace him.”

Danny was recently a judge on The Voice Kids spin-off alongside Pixie Lott and Will.i.am.

As well as the McFly star, a comeback could be on the cards for former coach Ricky Wilson, who was on the show when it aired on BBC One.

And after a year out this series when the show moved to ITV, Ricky's hoping for a comeback to the spinning red chairs.

He said last month: "I’m open to it. I await the phone call. I’d love to do it.”

Ricky continued: "I know how to do it now.

“I got a lot more involved in it than I ever thought I would, I thought it would be all smoke and mirrors and a bit showbizzy… but you get genuinely attached to them.”

Alongside Gavin, Will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Jennifer Hudson were on The Voice UK line up for the last series, while Emma Willis hosted the series.

A spokeswoman for Gavin declined to comment on the story.
