Anne-Marie has reportedly been axed from the coaching panel on The Voice UK.


Reports have claimed producers want to give the series "a refresh", and are "looking at who is hot in the music world" to engage a younger audience.

A source told The Sun: "Anne-Marie has loved being part of the show but producers want to give the series a refresh.

"ITV wants to ensure that the show pulls in teens, so they are always looking at who is hot in the music world."

When approached for comment, a spokesperson for ITV told "The Voice UK returns to ITV1 and ITVX for a brand new series on Saturday 4th November at 8:25pm featuring coaches, Sir Tom Jones, Anne-Marie and Olly Murs.

The news comes after Murs revealed he will also not be returning for the 2024 season, something he admitted he was "gutted" by.

In an interview with The Sun, Murs said: "I'm gutted. I got the call last week to say I won't be back on the show, and it's a bit of a shock, to be honest. I didn't really expect that to come...

"Genuinely, I accept their decision, and they'll find someone great, I'm sure. But am I going to miss it? Yeah. Did I want to leave? No. Will I still watch the show? Of course, but it'll be sore thinking that could have been me."

The Voice UK starts Saturday 4th November at 8:25pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
