Kylie Minogue and Nicole Scherzinger have been tipped as possible replacements for Rita Ora on The Voice UK.

The new X Factor judges were confirmed yesterday with Rita joining the rival series.

It’s left The Voice in search of another new female coach for the third time in three years having previously seen both Jessie J and Kylie quit.

However it’s been rumoured already that Kylie could be back having said she’d be up for a return in 2016 last year.

Kylie said in 2014: “I just can’t go back next season [2015] as I am on tour, but the season after that… it’s an open book. Let’s see.”

The Voice UK producer Moira Ross previously said that Kylie had never actually quit the show and was instead ‘on hiatus’.

“Kylie’s doing her world tour, so she’s not available for series four’s filming dates,” she aid. “But hopefully we’ll have her back for series five.

“So it’s a little hiatus.”

If Kylie doesn’t return then some more names that have already been put into the frame include former X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger or even original coach Jessie J.

Like Kylie, Jessie recently said a return could be on the cards.

“I miss doing The Voice,” the Bang Bang hitmaker told Q Magazine. “Winter days remind me of doing the show, but who knows? It might not be that long until I’m back on The Voice. Wink, wink!”
