Ricky Wilson Will Not Return To The Voice Following The Upcoming Season.
The Kaiser Chiefs frontman joined the TV talent show in 2013, but he's confirmed the upcoming 2016 series will be his final one in the famous red chair. The news comes after the BBC lost the rights to the programme, which was snapped up by ITV and will be aired on the channel from 2017.
"This is my last one anyway, yeah," he told Britain's The Mirror newspaper. "I was going to bow out gracefully. I don’t think ITV would want me. They would want to have a totally new show."
There has been a hot debate over whether the BBC should have put up a fight to keep the singing competition, after bosses at the station insisted they had no interest in entering a spat for the format with a commercial channel. Ricky suggests the BBC had every right to attempt to keep The Voice, especially as he believes wholeheartedly in the format.

Will.i.am, Boy George, Paloma Faith And Ricky Wilson Face The Axe From The U.k. Version Of The Voice After Plans Were Announced To Move It To A Rival Channel.
The BBC currently owns the rights to the show, but in a statement released on Saturday (06Nov15) on Twitter.com, it was revealed the fifth series, due to air in January, 2016, will be the last on the network.
Mark Linsey, acting director of BBC Television, said bosses refused to get into a bidding war for the show, and it was eventually "poached by another broadcaster".
He added, "The BBC is incredibly proud of The Voice, but the fifth series which starts in January will be our last. We always said we wouldn't get into a bidding war or pay inflated prices to keep the show, and it's testament to how the BBC has built the programme up - and established it into a mainstay of the Saturday night schedule - that another broadcaster has poached it."
