The Voice UK: Jess Glynne Turns Down Judging Seat
Jess Glynne has turned down an offer to take a seat in one of the spinning red chairs on the next series of The Voice UK.
The show, which will be aired on ITV for the first time next year, has reportedly previously had offers to judge the show rejected by Sir Paul McCartney, Gary Barlow and Kylie Minogue.

The last series saw Will.i.am, Boy George, Paloma Faith and Ricky Wilson in the red chairs for the final BBC edition of the show.
Revealing that she was offered a spot on The Voice as a judge, Jess told The Sun: “There have been talks. People have approached me about it but it’s just not something I’m interested in right now to be honest.
“Maybe at some point in the future but not at the moment.”
A show insider added that it’s ‘not looking good’ for the programme’s judging line-up, explaining: “Producers are having no luck finding respected musicians to join the show.
“Jess knows exactly what it takes to be a star and ITV really want to make sure they find talent who will become fully-fledged artists. They knew she wouldn’t have held back when it came to her comments and were really disappointed she turned down their offer so quickly.
“There is still time to find people for the show but the top choices for coaches have all ruled themselves out.”
Only time will tell who will sign up.
