The Voice: Marvin Humes Recalls Fight Between Boy George And Paloma Faith

Back in September, reports claimed that the new coaches on The Voice - Boy George and Paloma Faith - had got into a huge row during auditions in Manchester.

Now, Marvin Humes, who hosts the show with Emma Willis, has revealed that it all ended in tears.

Recalling the incident on the Christmas Day edition of Alan Carr’s Chatty Man, Marvin explained: “There were tears. It was an explosive day.

“You will see it on the show. It went on for about half an hour.”


It was reported that it all started when Paloma pretended to fall asleep during Boy George’s pitch and tried to pass it off as banter, with the Mirror reporting that Boy George then hit back: “You said you weren’t going to be b*tchy and you’re being b*tchy.

“You’ve probably got PMT or something, you were extremely rude. If you choose Paloma she will probably fall asleep while you sing.”

According to The Daily Star, he also told her: “You’re a disgrace! Who are you? One hit in America doesn’t make you a star. I’ve sold over 150million records.”

The Mirror reports that she then responded: “I am really happy with what I have done and continue to progress, maybe I haven’t had as long in the game as George but hopefully one day I will.

“When I put my mind to something then I will win.”

On a more positive note, the host praised the new coaches, saying: “People are going to be blown away by these two.


“They are really, really great for the show and Will and Ricky [Wilson] do a great job anyway, but I think people are going to be very shocked.”

Alan Carr’s Chatty Man Christmas Special is on Christmas Day at 9pm on Channel 4
