The Voice UK: Danny O'Donoghue wants Adele, Elton John on panel

Danny O'Donoghue (The Voice UK)

The Voice UK coach Danny O'Donoghue has said he wants Elton John and Adele to join the show.

It follows the news that Jessie J and Sir Tom Jones aren't set to be back for a second series of the BBC singing contest next year.

Danny said last week he'd "miss" Jessie on the panel, but had already thought of possible replacements for both her and Welsh legend Sir Tom.

"Elton John. I've thought about this long and hard. I think Elton John needs to take over Tom's position," he told Free Radio.

The Script frontman continued: "And I'm still open - I think possibly Adele, because she'd come on for Jessie. I think that would be one hell of a line-up.

"Then you'd have to probably rethink me, and have someone better than me on. But I think that would be a really, really great line-up."

A spokesperson for the BBC said that talks for the new series were still ongoing, and nothing about the line up was confirmed.

Try outs for the new series take place in the autumn.
