Green to take The Voice to Britain

Cee Lo Green is set for a double dose of The Voice next year after he was offered a coaching job on the British version of the hit TV talent show.

The US talent contest sees a panel of judges choose acts purely on the strength of their vocal performances, and Green appears as a coach alongside Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

All of the judges have signed up for a second series, and now Green has revealed he will also be heading across the Atlantic when the show launches in 2012.

He tells the Daily Star, "I have been offered the coaching gig. I plan to take it. We just have to work out a schedule that is not completely overbearing."

Green recently quit his tour with Rihanna over fears his hectic work schedule would start to impact on his performances.
