Bosses at The Voice UK really are going all out to get some top musical coaches, offering a reported £1 million for Kylie Minouge to join Jessie J in the panel. The BBC however are apparently finding it hard to negotiate with stars for the show.
Talks are currently underway between bosses and number of musical superstars - including Kylie, Will.i.am, Tom Jones, Robbie Williams and even Adele.
But the financially struggling BBC is finding itself unable to shell out the multi-million pound deals rivals like ITV can offer.
The Sun claim that Kylie Minogue, whose sister Dannii used to judge on the X Factor, had originally wanted £2.5 million for the show.
Coming at a time of huge job cuts at the channel, the request was never going to go down well, and it would make Kylie the highest paid BBC talent.
But a source said: "We won't break the bank for anyone."
