Ricky Wilson to return to The Voice

icky Wilson would go back to "The Voice" "tomorrow" if he was asked.

The Kaiser Chiefs frontman - who mentored on the programme for three years - turned his back on the show last year in order to focus on his own music career, but he has admitted he'd love to reclaim his red spinning chair next year but is worried that he'll never be invited back now that the series has moved across to ITV.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz at the 62nd Ivor Novello Awards - sponsored by PRS for Music and BASCA - at London's Grosvenor House on Thursday (18.05.17), he said: "I'd love to go back to "The Voice". It's loads of fun. I'd go back tomorrow if they asked me. I'm glad I took some time off - like anything, if you get used to it you get jaded by it, so I'm glad to step away from it but there's situations where you step away from it and then you're not invited back.

"But one day I'd like to be go back, either that or something else. If you asked my partner she'd say I hated it. I probably hate doing it but I love having done it."

The 39-year-old singer was replaced by Gavin Rossdale and, although he's desperate to return to the panel, Ricky thinks the Bush rocker should stick it out.

Gavin Rossdale axed from The Voice?

He explained: "Really is Gavin leaving? If they offer it to him I'd say stick in there Gavin, because the first year is always the hardest. It was for me because to be honest it's like people have got very short memories, and everyone was like, "Ricky who?" By the second and third time, I was winning the s**t out of it. Why am I saying this? I want ITV to get rid of him (Gavin). Now that's not what I'm saying."
