The Voice of Ireland star Kian Egan hits out at UK coaches

The Voice UK

The Voice of Ireland star Kian Egan has hit out at the coaches on the UK show, complaining that they are too bitchy!

The Westlife singer is one of four coaches on the Irish version of the show, which started earlier this year.

Speaking to the Herald, Kain whinged that his British counterparts were very "different", moaning that Sir Tom Jones, Danny O'Donoghue, Jessie J and will.i.am were "at each other" all the time.

"I watched it last week and it's quite different," he told the publication this week. "It's a bit more like X Factor, I thought, with the big storylines and stuff like that.

"I also thought the coaches are a bit bitchier towards each other which obviously makes for good TV. They're a bit more at each other."

And the singer - perhaps unsurprisingly - backed former manager Simon Cowell and his rival series Britain's Got Talent.

He added: "They're at the exciting stage that we were at when this first started and now everybody's used to it in Ireland. Although I thought it was good, I prefer Britain's Got Talent myself."

The Voice UK continues with its blind auditions on Saturday night at 7PM.
