The Voice UK host Reggie Yates hits out at "contrived" X Factor

Reggie (The Voice UK)

The Voice UK host Reggie Yates has taken yet another swipe at The X Factor, saying it's too contrived.

The Radio 1 DJ claimed that his show, which was watched by over 10 million viewers on Saturday night, is much more – yes, you’ve guessed it - credible.

"Our show doesn't feel contrived, it feels credible," said Reggie last week, explaining the different between The Voice and X Factor.

“The fact that we have coaches instead of judges is a big thing."

He explained: "It changes the way feedback’s given - they won't criticise someone's outfit."

Reggie also made a dig at X Factor hosts Dermot O'Leary, Caroline Flack and Olly Murs for stealing the limelight on the ITV1 show!

He said: “Holly and I aren't the stars of the show - the artists and the coaches are and we're merely here to guide them.”

The Voice UK continues on Saturday night on BBC One.
