It has been reported that BBC bosses are keen to get former X Factor judge Cheryl Cole and chart topping singer Adele on their new reality talent show The Voice. The pair would join Cee Lo Green, who recently confirmed he was in talks for the new BBC series set to launch in the new year.
The show, which originated in the Netherlands, has been a huge success in the USA were Cee Lo judges alongside the likes of Christina Aguilera and Marron 5 front man Adam Levine.
A show insider told The Mirror: “Adele’s success is all down to her incredible voice and, in this way, embodies all that The Voice represents.
“She is honest, funny and loved by millions of people of all ages. She really has ‘The Voice’ that can sell albums around the world so she knows what to look for.”
They added: “Her style and look is also very different to that of Cheryl Cole, so if we could get them both on board it would be fantastic.”
Adele also seemed to hint at the possibility of her joining the show, cryptically telling Chris Moyles on Radio 1 this week: “There’s a possibility I’m doing something quite big next year – I’ve got a meeting about it on Friday.”
