Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am has been a regular in the spinning chairs since the show started in 2012.

But according to reports in The Mirror, it looks like Will could be following in the footsteps of other coaches like Jessie J and Kylie and quitting his role on the show.

A source said: “Will feels that with this huge change it’s the right time to leave but it’s quite an emotional decision.”

This news comes just days after Will confirmed that The Black Eyed Peas would be reuniting this year.

He said: “Yeah…so…yes… There will be a Black Eyed Peas reunion. It breaks my heart that I even have to say that because really we should just always have been doing Black Eyed Peas actually.”

The band went on an indefinite hiatus back in 2011- and reunited without Fergie - last year to celebrate 20 years together.

If Will does quit The Voice, could this reunion be the reason?
