Former The Voice US coach Adam Levine has revealed whether or not he'd ever return to the popular reality show.

The Maroon 5 frontman stepped down from his role as mentor last year after none of his acts made it to the finale. Since then, the competition has changed its rules so that each celeb coach is ensured to have at least one contestant in the race until the very end.

With that in mind, Levine, who appeared on 16 seasons over eight years, was asked by a fan during a recent Instagram Q&A if he'd consider parking himself in one of the iconic red swivel chairs again, to which he candidly replied: "No thank you?"

Prior to leaving The Voice US, Levine came under fire for appearing to favour one of his team members, Reagan Strange, over DeAndre Nico, despite the fact that the former was too unwell to perform.

During one particular episode, viewers pointed out that he was using the time he'd been allocated to discuss Nico's act to campaign for votes for Reagan.

It seems as if he has no hard feelings towards the series on the whole though, as he went on to jokingly tease his former co-star, country singer Blake Shelton, in a similar way.

"Did you miss Blake on The Voice last season?" one of his followers pondered, to which he said: "Blake who?"

After Adam's departure, Blake became the only coach to appear on every single season. When the show returns next year, Blake will be joined by Nick Jonas, John Legend, and Kelly Clarkson, with Blake's fiancée Gwen Stefani stepping down from her red spinning chair.

The Voice US airs on NBC. Its UK equivalent is broadcast on ITV.
