Cheryl Cole helping Will.i.am house hunt in London ahead of The Voice UK launch

Will.i.am (The Voice UK)

Former X Factor star Cheryl Cole has reportedly been helping pal Will.i.am house hunt in London ahead of the launch of The Voice UK.

It was confirmed this morning that the new BBC One series would start on March 24, with live shows kicking off in April and May.

The Daily Mirror reports today that Chezza has been given Will a helping hand in picking out a nice place for him to stay in while he's in Britain for the show.

Will, who had to leave a recent press event for The Voice UK to fly back to LA, complained: “I’m really stuck right now.

"Where is my home? It must be up in the air with all the flying I do."

An insider told the newspaper: “Cheryl has told him to leave it all up to her. She knows his taste, arty with fab architecture or a futuristic feel. They’ve ruled out a tacky bachelor pad.

“Wherever they choose, studio space will be vital. He is always working and does not want to put his beat-making on hold.”

The source added to the tabloid: “Will is desperate to lay down some roots. He helped Chez in LA last year when she was there for X Factor, so she wants to return the favour.”

Will.i.am will be joined by British star Jessie J, Welsh singer Tom Jones and Irish rocker Danny O'Donoghue on the new BBC One series when it starts this month.
