Kylie Minogue confirms The Voice UK departure

The singer cites her European Tour as the reason she won't be returning for series four of the BBC1 talent show

Kylie Minogue has confirmed she won’t be returning to The Voice UK. 


The 45-year-old singer – whose recent stint on the judging panel was praised by critics – broke the news on Twitter and Facebook, telling her fans: 

“Hi Lovers, thanks to all of you for your incredible support throughout this past season of The Voice UK.

“I’m sad to say that, due to the timing of my European Tour, I won’t be back for season four. I absolutely loved my time on the show, and I’ll miss all of the incredible people who were a part of my experience.

“I hope to see you all on my Kiss Me Once Tour, and wish continued success to everyone at The Voice!”

Moira Ross, Executive Producer at Wall to Wall, added: “Kylie has brought her own very special magic to The Voice UK and we have loved having her on the show. We wish her well for her tour and hope to welcome her back in the future.”

It is not yet known whether Minogue’s fellow judges Tom Jones, and Ricky Wilson will be reprising their roles on the show, with the BBC confirming that discussions are still ongoing.

Last month the broadcaster announced they had commissioned two more series of The Voice, ensuring it will remain on British television screens until 2016.
