After four years as a mentor, will.i.am has reportedly decided to step down for his role  on The Voice UK.

The star of the Black Eyed Peas has been a mentor on the programme since the very first season. Apparently, his decision has come a result of his disappointment with the show not producing any overly successful stars.

According the The Mirror, bosses at the BBC are “desperate” to keep him on the programme, especially since Rita Ora also backed out of her role this year.

A source has reportedly said:

"Will has been in discussions with producers but decided he doesn't want to return this year. He’s disappointed Rita Ora left and is frustrated the show has failed to produce an international star.”

Will is also supposedly upset that his former contestant Leah McFall failed to “set the charts alight”.

There are rumours that American singer Jason Derulo could step in as a replacement for Will. Kaiser Chiefs singer Ricky Wilson is expected to sign on again and there are also plenty of rumours that Kylie Minogue could be making her return in the future.

The Daily Star on Sunday reports that singer Joss Stone, 28, was approached to sign on as a mentor but refused.

A spokesperson for The Voice is reported as saying that negotiations are still ongoing ahead of the series fifth year in production.

Is there anything that Will.i.am cannot turn his hand to?

It would seems that the singer has turned tech entrepreneur on us, after unveiling his new ‘smart cuff’, the Puls.

The Black Eyed Peas star is obviously keen to give Apple a run for their money, creating this fancy new accessory that not only tells the time, but also makes phone calls and access online services.

The star, who created the snazzy new device with his electronics company i.am+, was at pains to emphasise that the Puls is most certainly “not a watch” during its live launch show in San Francisco.

Indeed, not only can the cuff do all of the amazing things mentioned above, but it can also monitor fitness, play music and allow wearers to interact on social media.

While we have no clue how long the battery in Will’s super-duper cuff lasts for, the models presented on stage came out wearing special coats that can actually charge the device using battery packs.

Few details have been released regarding pricing and when the Puls will be going on sale, but one all-important criteria has been unveiled – the colours! The Puls will be available in a range of shades including black, white, pink and blue.

And for those who want to push the boat out, flashy solid-gold and diamond-encrusted versions will also be available.

Since the launch, Will has taken to Twitter to simply say: “Today was awesome.”

We’d believe it, Will!

You may remember Jimmy Fallon's sketch of teenage girls who think everything is gross and 'ew' from when Taylor Swift appeared in it.

Now however, it just got taken to a whole new level. 

Starring Jimmy and will.i.am as gossipy teens Sara and mir.i.am, you will have to watch this rap song several times just to make sure it isn't a weird hallucination.

Ew.

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini’s long time friend will.i.am has revealed something about her secret wedding to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini that has taken us by surprise – he didn’t know about it!

Not only that but he only found out about it yesterday!

The Black Eyed Peas member was surprised to hear the news from reporters in Paris on Wednesday, telling MailOnline: “She got married already? Oh I didn’t even know that!”

Huh, really?!

We thought Will would have been on that exclusive guestlist for sure – it sounds like the wedding was more hush-hush than anyone imagined!

Will went on to say that he is happy for Cheryl and Jean-Bernard: “That’s cool! I’m happy for her, that’s dope!”

Cheryl’s former guest mentor wasn’t the only one shocked by the news of Cheryl’s nuptials as Nadine Coyle also claimed she actually thought the marriage was to one of Cheryl’s former boyfriends.

Perhaps after her first marriage Cheryl just really wanted things to be very, very (very!) quiet indeed.

Will.i.am was left fuming after being kicked out of a first class lounge at an airport yesterday.

The Voice UK coach took to Twitter to hit out at United Airlines after reportedly being told to leave a VIP lounge because staff thought he had a fake membership card.

Cheryl Cole’s BFF posted on Twitter, ”#unitedAIRLINES is the worse. Im a member & I have my card to prove it. but they tell me my card is fake & kick me out the lounge #ouch (sic).”

He added, ”Ha ha ha I got kick out the club…#unitedCLUBsucks…(sic)”, with a photograph of the ‘Global First Lounge’ sign as he stood outside.

While it’s unclear what airport the star was flying from, he had earlier tweeted that was planning on visiting his good friend Puff Daddy in Washington D.C for his speech at Howard University that day.

”I fly so much.. a business should know who their customers are… its okay im making this my lounge,” the peeved celebrity posted, along with a photograph of a chair in the corner of the airport.

And he still wasn’t done…

Later on, when a pilot asked for his autograph, he tweeted, ”I get kicked out of the @united lounge because they say I’m not a member.. oh well.. & then the @united pilot asks me to take a selfie #WTF. (sic).”

After pint-sized pop star Kylie Minogue last week announced she was leaving The Voice UK after only one series, fellow judge will.i.am is said to be following suit.

The Black Eyed Peas star, who has spent three years on the show, has reportedly decided to leave to focus on his own music career.

The TV talent show has already been commissioned for two more series, but bosses are worried that coaches Tom Jones and newcomer Ricky Wilson will also call it a day.

Justin Timberlake is said to have been discussed as a potential replacement for will.i.am as he’s a huge fan of the show, but bosses have their work cut out for them if they’re to snag the mega star.

Well, The Voice judge has collaborated with a lot of big names, from Cheryl Cole to Britney Spears. But, now Will.i.am apparently wants to record a duet with none other, than Anne Hathaway.

Yes, you read that right. Apparently, the former Black Eyed Peas singer was “blown away” by her singing performance in the film, Rio.

Will was speaking of Anne’s performance in the film with Ryan Seacrest and openly invited the Oscar winning actress, to record a duet with him.

“I want to make music with you. From Rio 1, I was like, ‘She sings like that?!’ … It would be so amazing to do music outside of an animated film. That would be freaking dope.”

Both Hathaway and Will.i.am starred and sang in the children’s flick, Rio and the sequel Rio 2.

Anne of course heard about Will’s invitation, but believes the singer would change his mind, once he hears her in studio.

“I am blushing so hard right now. The thing is, he’s going to get me in the studio and then he’s going to hear me for real, and he’s going to be like, ‘Oh, never mind.’ He works with Fergie! That’s like his 9am meeting. I can’t beat that!”

We aren’t going to lie, we would love a collaboration between these two. Just to see, what they would come up with.

The Voice judge will.i.am has come under fire by the BBC for plugging his smartphone watch live on air.

The Black Eyed Peas frontman could be in line for a slap on the wrist from The Voice producers after he used the accessory during the show’s final on Saturday night.

The musician used the gadget to take a phone call from his pal Cheryl Cole, despite the channel’s strict advertising and product placement ban.

Cheryl had called him to praise his winning act Jermain Jackman for his rendition of Miley Cyrus hit Wrecking Ball.

This isn’t the first time the star has landed himself in hot water as he was previously banned from wearing a jacket embroidered with the words Go Hard Or Go Home, after he was accused of using the slogan to plug his 2011 single T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever).

will.i.am spoke of his latest gadget when wearing his smartphone watch during a recent appearance on Alan Carr: Chatty Man.

He said, “It takes my heartbeat, my calorie burn, you can make purchases from it. I started the company and funded it and used my own money to develop it.”

Will.i.am doesn’t strike us as the emotional type, but in this sneak peek for The Voice he is moved to tears by a woman who reminds him of his aunt.

Kylie is seen looking concerned as Will cries while the singer then tells them that her own mother passed away two weeks previously. An emotionally charged sneak peek, that’s for sure!
