The Voice UK: Cheryl Cole favourite to replace Jessie J!

Cheryl Cole

Jessie J hasn't even confirmed reports she's quit The Voice UK, but there's already speculation about who could take over from her.

It was reported yesterday that both Jessie and Sir Tom Jones could be leaving the BBC One series after just the one run, leaving space for two new faces on the panel.

And Chezza is the bookies favourite, which is rather unsurprising. The Call My Name singer has the experience, having judged on The X Factor for three years, she's performed on the show and has very close links with coach Will.i.am.

But will she be up for it? With new album A Million Lights struggling in the charts, it'd be a great platform for Cheryl as much as the artists who are competing.

Paddy Power has made the Geordie performer the 7/2 favourite, with Will Young close behind.

Pop Idol winner Will was originally lined up as a coach for this year's first series, but ditched at the last minute in favour of Danny O'Donoghue.

New X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger is 8/1 for a shock move, while Robbie Williams and Geri Haliwell are also tipped to be in the running.

Former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke is at 12/1 to join the panel in the new year.

Auditions for the second series of the voice start in the autumn.
