A TV insider said: “It’s a huge coup for The Voice to have Olly on board.

“He’s got talent show experience, comedic charm and a huge fanbase. His personality will shine through as a coach.

“It won’t be like when he presented X Factor when he had to remain impartial.”


The insider added: “Simon isn’t happy Olly’s swapped allegiances, especially as he left the X Factor to concentrate on his music.”

The news comes after it was claimed The Voice UK bosses decided to drop Gavin Rossdale due to his "lack of charisma".

Olly joins a long list of stars who have swapped between the rival shows.  

Marvin Humes, 32, hosted The Voice when it was on the BBC from 2014 to 2016 - despite being discovered on the X Factor as part of JLS.

While singer Rita Ora left The Voice to join the X Factor as a judge in 2015.

Good luck Olly!
