UNSURPRISINGLY, Kylie Minogue has announced she will not be returning to The Voice.

The show, which has completely failed to set the world on fire, mainly thanks to being somehow more cynical than The X Factor, thanks to it’s slapped-on veneer of authenticity, has been plodding along with Tom Jones looking confused, will.i.am. being oddly adorable like someone made a human tamagotchi and then there’s Ricky from Kaiser Chiefs who is what he is.

Kylie however, was a surprise inclusion, replacing Jessie J. Surely she was too successful and busy to be pissing around with a programme like The Voice?

Well, file it under An Experiment That Didn’t Work as she won’t be coming back for a second stint, saying that the timing of her tour is getting in the way. That’s useful and convenient isn’t it?

Through her Twitter and Facebook accounts, she said: “I’m sad to say that, due to the timing of my European tour, I won’t be back for Season 4.”

“I absolutely loved my time on the show, and I’ll miss all of the incredible people who were a part of my experience.”

“I hope to see you all on my ‘Kiss Me Once’ tour, and wish continued success to everyone at ‘The Voice’!”

“#Lovers, due to timing of my tour I won’t be back next season for The Voice UK”

Bizarrely, BBC One chief Charlotte Moore confirmed that The Voice is going to run until 2016. That’s another two years of famous people with their backs to hopefuls, pressing big buttons and doing their best earnest faces while some busker emotionally bleeds over an acoustic cover of an in-vogue pop record.

It gets worse. The bookies favourite to replace Kylie? Chris Martin from Coldplay.
