Ricky Wilson wants to play Poirot

Ricky Wilson wants to play Hercules Poirot.

The 'Voice' judge is reportedly a big fan of the TV detective from the long-running series 'Agatha Christie's Poirot', which is based on the novels by the crime author, and wants to take on the role himself.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Ricky says his ideal job would be to play Poirot. He spends his nights off watching re-runs of the show and would love to do a remake."

The Kaiser Chiefs frontman - who underwent a makeover before he joined 'The Voice' - recently split from his girlfriend of five years, TV producer Lesley Williams, and has blamed his job on the BBC singing competition for their break-up.

He said previously: "I took the risk of putting myself out there and I knew it was going to change me.

"I feel quite uncomfortable that I dragged someone else in who didn't want that. It's a huge part of my life and I find it tricky that I dragged someone else in who didn't want that. It's a huge part of my life and I find it tricky that I can't have it both ways."
