Boy George gutted over Voice move

Boy George is "gutted" 'The Voice' is moving to ITV.

The 'Karma Chameleon' singer admitted he and his fellow coaches, Paloma Faith,, and Ricky Wilson are disappointed the BBC has lost the rights to the show.

He said: "It's a brilliant show and I think we are all kind of gutted that it is leaving the BBC. I'm gutted it's leaving the BBC because it's been so brilliant. I wish they had kept it."

Paloma added: "We are scared of the unknown."

Though Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky has previously insisted he won't be back for another series of the talent show, he now admits he'd have second thoughts if he was offered enough money.

Speaking to Alan Carr on an episode of 'Chatty Man' airing on Channel 4 tonight (24.03.16), he said: "I always have to think about what, this is the thing, I'm not going to go back and do 'The Voice' when it comes back - this is my last one.

"But I always have to think about my dad, and if ITV offered me a load of money I would say to my dad, 'I didn't want to do it because I didn't think it was right', he would go, 'You f***ing what? Do it! And pay off your mortgage.'

"So I might do it, if it would pay off my mortgage yeah. You have to think about these things."
