Singer bows out of The Voice due to tour clash


Kyle Minogue has quit The Voice UK after only one series.

The pop star – who replaced Jessie J as a coach on the show for its third series – has decided to quit her role due to a schedule clash with her upcoming Kiss Me Once tour.

She wrote on her Facebook page, “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 4. I absolutely loved my time on the show, and I’ll miss all of the incredible people who were a part of my experience,” said the singer. “I hope to see you all on my ‘Kiss Me Once’ tour, and wish continued success to everyone at The Voice!”

The 45-year-old singer will be saying goodbye to fellow judges Ricky Wilson from the Kaiser Chiefs and veteran coaches and Tom Jones.

Although she’s quit the British version, Kylie is expected to be a coach on the Australian version of the show with this year.
