Paloma Faith's row with Boy George

Paloma Faith ran off stage after a row with Boy George on 'The Voice'.

The 'Only Love Can Hurt Like This' hitmaker was left visibly upset after she clashed with her fellow judge on the BBC One show as they both tried to recruit former Liberty X singer Kevin Simm to their team.

Boy George said: "There are a lot of big voices in the show. You sit and you think no one can be better than that, then suddenly someone sings.

"It's just constant surprise. One thing that I do know is that I understand singers. That's my forte."

When Paloma pretended to fall asleep, he hit back: "Excuse me, Palaver."

To which she retorted: "Is it finished, is it time for us to wake up?"

But Boy George clearly took a distaste to the comments, telling her she was "extremely rude".

He said: "That's extremely rude. Very rude. Anyway, you're amazing Kevin."

As the battle between the judges continued, the 'Karma Chameleon' hitmaker hit below the belt, telling the 34-year-old singer she had not had any success in the United States.

In scenes to be aired this weekend, the comment visibly upset Paloma as she ran off stage and away from the cameras.
