The Voice 2014 judges: Ricky Wilson looks stoned on the show, apparently

Ricky Wilson (The Voice 2014)

Ricky Wilson has revealed he's been told how he looks STONED on The Voice UK.

Speaking ahead of this weekend's live semi-final show, the Kaiser Chiefs frontman said he's apparently become known as "the one who is always stoned" on the BBC One programme.

He told Absolute Radio: "I did get a load of kids on the bus the other day say, 'Oh look, it’s that coach off 'The Voice', the one who is always stoned.

"I’m quite proud of that, that they think I’m always stoned. They think I’m on a BBC television programme and they allow me to go on stoned.”

Meanwhile Ricky admitted he was still feeling a tad insecure sitting alongside Kylie Minogue, Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones on the panel of this year's series.

“I do find it quite unnatural to be sat next to the other coaches… let me put it this way, I am the least famous person at that particular party, so I’m always looking down the line going ‘you invited me?’ What am I doing here?" he said.

But at least his mum's happy!

Ricky added: “My mum and dad are really happy, it is a different kind of thing being on TV than being in a band. You belong to people a lot more."

The Voice UK continues this Saturday night on BBC One.
