Kylie Minogue has announced that she will not return to The Voice once the current series ends.

Minogue joined the panel of the BBC1 talent show ahead of the current series, which reaches the live stages for the first time tonight (March 22). She appears as a coach alongside Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson.

However, touring commitments planned for later in 2014 mean that a return to the show for another series have proved impossible. Speaking to The Sun , Kylie says, "I'm touring later this year and the timings wouldn't work. We started filming in November last year and I'm on tour in September, October and November this year,” she said.

However, asked if she might be willing to return if the auditions were moved to fit her schedule, Minogue replied that she would "think about it".

Minogue will play nine dates across the UK and Ireland in September and October this year. Her new album 'Kiss Me Once' was released on Monday (March 17), and follows the release of lead single 'Into the Blue' last week, which debuted at 12 on the UK Top 40.

Kylie will play:

Liverpool Echo Arena (Sept 24)
Manchester Phones 4u Arena (26)
London O2 (29, 30)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (October 3)
Nottingham Capital FM Arena (5)
Birmingham The NIA (7)
Dublin O2 (Nov 8)
Belfast Odyssey Arena (9)
Newcastle Metro Radio Arena (11)
Glasgow The SSE Hydro (12)
Sheffield Motorpoint Arena (13)
