WE-E-E-E-E-E-E-ELLLL. Bosses at The Voice UK are apparently keen to get Lulu or Annie Lennox to replace Jessie J as head of Team Jessie.
Presumably they will rename it Team Annie or Team Lulu.
The Daily Mail claims that Jessie’s “frosty” relationship with producers, including BBC One controller Danny Cohen, makes her an easy target for dismissal… despite being the most popular coach among younger audiences.
Reggie Yates, the “co-host” (“the one who said a few bits from a room backstage once or twice”), is apparently also facing the axe, with Holly Willoughby’s media-baiting cleavage said to safe.
Lennox, famous for all the Eurythmics stuff, has previously been a huge detractor of Simon Cowell’s talent shows, but has a good relationship with Universal – the label with whom the winner scores a record deal.
As for Lulu, she was a judge on Just The Two Of Us (?) in 2006 and also grated slightly on Strictly Come Dancing last season.
