Rita Ready For Voice Takeover
Voice UK Winning Coach
The Voice UK is back on Sunday with the first instalment of the blind auditions set to take place. Will.i.am, Ricky Wilson and Tom Jones are all back on the red chairs alongside one new face as Rita Ora replaces Kylie Minogue.
Will.i.am is the returning champion having had the winner, Jermain Jackman, on his team last season and is the one to beat as the 9/4 favourite to be the winning coach. However, Will only has the very slight edge over the other coaches in the betting.
Newcomer Rita Ora is expected to give the boys a run for their money and is hot on Will’s heels at 5/2.
Tom Jones won the Voice UK in its very first season with Leanne Mitchell so it is no surprise that we’re keeping him on their side and installing him as a 5/2 shot to be the winning coach. This is Ricky Wilson’s second year on the panel and although he had runner-up Christina Marie on his team last year, he is not expected to have the winner on his side at 3/1.
