Pop singer leaves her position as coach after one series
Kylie Minogue has confirmed that she will not return to The Voice next year.
Minogue joined the panel of the BBC1 talent show ahead of the current series, which concluded last week with Jermain Jackman emerging as the winner. She appeared 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 has proved impossible.
“Due to timing of my tour I won’t be back next season for The Voice UK,” Minogue wrote on Twitter. “Thanks to all who supported!”
“I absolutely loved my time on the show, and I’ll miss all of the incredible people who were a part of my experience,” the singer added.
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 March 17 and features the lead single ‘Into The Blue’.

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)
