Ricky Wilson says he’s told not to talk too much during live rounds of The Voice in case he swears

Kaiser Chiefs singer makes BBC1 bosses nervous ahead of live shows which start next weekend (March 24)

Kaiser Chiefs singer Ricky Wilson says he has been warned not to talk too much during the live rounds of The Voice in case he swears.

Wilson admitted he often swears during Kaiser Chiefs gigs when he gets excited, and fears he would do the same during the BBC1 talent contest.

After the pre-recorded audition and battle rounds of the singing show,The Voice’s live rounds start next Saturday (March 24). Wilson told Magic Radio: “The producers don’t like me talking me that much during the live shows. They’re worried I might swear. If I’m talking to the contestants and telling them what I feel, I have to stop myself from saying ‘That was effing awesome.’ Emotions run high, and I’m in that state where I’ll say anything in my head.”

Wilson is in his second year being a mentor in the show, alongside fellow judges Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Rita Ora.

Meanwhile, Kaiser Chiefs performed on Radio 2 today (March 16) as part of Dermot O’Leary’s 24-hour non-stop dancing in aid of Comic Relief. The DJ is dancing continuously with bands including The Leisure Society playing live and personalities such as Pointless co-host Richard Osman creating playlists for O’Leary to dance to before his marathon finishes at 7:30pm.

Kaiser Chiefs unveiled the video for new single Falling Awake this week. They play at Barclaycard British Summer Time, Belladrum, Kendal Calling, Camp Bestival and An Evening At The Races festivals as well as supporting Foo Fighters on their stadium tour.
