According to 'an insider' with connections at both the BBC and the Daily Mirror, Rita Ora will fill Kylie Minogue's seat on the next series of The Voice.
“Rita is the pop star of the moment, the Beeb are delighted," mused the curiously well-connected source. "They think she’s going to be a ratings hit and even more popular than Kylie."
He or she went on: “It has taken months of negotiations but Rita is happy and thinks the show is a much better fit for her than The X Factor."
(Rita was apparently once offered £1m to judge on The X Factor.)
“She’ll still be able to get on with her music and it won’t take over her life as much as The X Factor.”
Mind you, a spokesperson for The Voice production firm Wall To Wall took a partial piss on the above-mentioned chips by being all “It is too early to confirm speculation", "An announcement will be made in due course” about the whole thing, so think twice before ordering that job lot of bunting off Amazon.
