‘THE VOICE UK’ HOST REGGIE YATES DEFENDS SHOW

BBC Radio/The Voice UK’s Reggie Yates

In an interview with tabloid rag The Sun The Voice UK host Reggie Yates defends the show which did poorly in the ratings and shoots down comparisons to its ITV rival The X-Factor.

A clearly irritated Yates said,

“To compare us to The X Factor, which has been on for nine years, just feels unfair. We’d just started, and if you rule out all the comparisons and look at what we did, then I think you’d see we did a bloody good job first time around.

“I think what the judges did worked. If you produce great talent that’s all that matters. It’s not about bitching and rowing, it’s about making sure people get better every week. And that’s what everyone needs to get their head around.

“It’s not that kind of show, there are no backstage antics, there are no dressing rooms with huge hot tubs in them.”

And on whether he would be returning for the second series of the show Yates said,

 None of us know yet if we’ll be back on The Voice, I’m sure there are lots of conversations happening at the BBC.

“But you know what it’s like with these big entertainment shows, everyone finds out at the last minute. I’m waiting much like everything else. I want to be back, if it happens, I’d be chuffed to be back, because it’s so much fun.”

I just hope that if Reggie does return to the show the BBC allow him to present up front alongside Holly Willoughby more often, rather than leaving him stuck backstage throughout the duration of the show, interviewing the contestants in a dressing room/toilet.
