Looking for the next Star Girl (or Boy).
With The Voice UK’s coaching panel now settled, all eyes are on ITV’s upcoming youth-centric spinoff.
The Voice Kids has already lined up will.i.am from the main show, and now The Mirror reports that McFly’s Danny Jones is in advanced talks for a coaching job as well.
Producers apparently see Jones as a “perfect fit” for The Voice Kids because “young contestants will really relate” to the boyband sensation, according to an insider.
A spokesperson for ITV told Digital Spy: “The panel for The Voice Kids will be confirmed in due course.”
Danny already has family history with The Voice, as his sister Vicky made it through to the Battle Rounds two years ago.
McFly are riding high right now off the success of their first reunion tour since super-group McBusted split, and are still hard at work on their follow-up to 2010’s Above the Noise.
With The Voice moving from the BBC to ITV in 2017, producers took a huge step in bringing over will.i.am from its main coaching panel to the Kids spinoff.
Before we get the companion show, will.i.am is reuniting with his old friend Sir Tom Jones to join Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson and alternative rock god Gavin Rossdale on The Voice UK.
Emma Willis is also making the jump over from the BBC when The Voice UK premieres on ITV next January.
