BBC’s the Voice, the limping version of The X Factor, has a new judge and it’s mate of Louder Than War & Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson. It’s all a long way away from when his former band Parvo used to support Goldblade in toilet gigs in leeds!
Ricky has joined BBC talent show The Voice, completing the 2014 line-up.
A three-time Brit winner, his band is known for songs such as I Predict A Riot, Oh My God and Ruby.
He’ll be joining new signing Kylie Minogue and returning stars Tom Jones and Will.i.am on the judging panel when the show returns to BBC One next January.
Wonder what happened to that other bloke from some band that no-one seems to have heard of who was the other judge?
