The Voice's Boy George and Paloma Faith's 'explosive' row

Boy George and Paloma Faith had an "explosive" row while filming the audition stages of 'The Voice'.

The two new coaches, who have replaced Rita Ora and Sir Tom Jones on the panel for series five of the show, are set to "shock" viewers with their on-screen squabbling after they clashed over a contestant in a forthcoming episode.

Marvin Humes - who co-hosts the show with Emma Willis - said: "There were tears. It was an explosive day. You will see it on the show. It went on for about half an hour."

The exciting cat fight saw the 'Karma Chameleon' hitmaker, 54, blast superstar Paloma, 34, for being "bitchy" and "rude", before the pair finally settled their differences.

But, despite the on-screen tension, Marvin, 30, believes Boy George and Paloma create a great atmosphere on the programme and work really well with returning mentors Ricky Wilson, 37, and will, 40.

Speaking to Alan Carr on the Christmas Day edition of 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man', Marvin explained: "People are going to be blown away by these two. They are really, really great for the show and Will and Ricky Wilson do a great job anyway, but I think people are going to be very shocked."

Meanwhile, 'The Voice' is set to return to television screens across the nation in January for its last series on BBC One after ITV - which airs rival show 'The X Factor' - poached it for 2017 in a deal worth an estimated £33 million.
