The Voice UK: Joss Stone turns down coaching role

The Voice UK

English soul singer Joss Stone turned down The Voice UK, she has revealed.

The 25-year-old has revealed she was approached by show bosses to join the line up, but declined their offer.

It's not clear whether this was in the run up to the first series last year or for the upcoming second series.

While both Danny O'Donoghue and Will.i.am are definitely set to return, Jessie J has reportedly quit the series.

And Sir Tom Jones has said he'll only return if he "approves" for the other coaches.

Speaking to the Daily Express, Joss said: "I was approached for The Voice in Britain but I don't think so."

The 'You Had Me' hitmaker explained: "The thing is I love music and I love singing with other people and I don't see it as a competition at all.

"I feel that those things are really good to get exposure but they kind of make it into a competition and that is just sad.

"Other than that it is great because they get to be heard by millions and they never would have been before."

The Voice UK returns to BBC One next year.
