Cheryl Cole has revealed she wasn't asked to coach on The Voice UK, and admitted she couldn't do it anyway.

The former X Factor star has been a rather vocal supporter of the show on Twitter, and of manager and friend Will.i.am.

Speaking on Radio 1 today, Cheryl said: “I wasn’t asked to do The Voice.

"I couldn’t do it – to be honest that battle scene freaks me out. Watching them getting in each other’s faces gives me anxiety."

She added: "Putting two people I’d chosen to battle against each other, I couldn’t do it."

The Girls Aloud singer went on to praise the four coaches who were eventually chosen by the BBC, saying: "Will is amazing – lots of my friends are always saying 'I didn't know he was like this', but to me he’s just Will.

"I love Jessie, Tom is sharp and Danny is really sweet.”
