Ricky Wilson

Ricky Wilson, lead singer of award-winning British band Kaiser Chiefs is to fill the fourth and final red chair as a coach on BBC One’s The Voice when it returns in January 2014, completing the show’s exciting new line-up.

Fronted by Ricky, Kaiser Chiefs topped the charts with “Ruby” and held Top 10 chart positions with “I Predict A Riot”, “Every Day I Love You Less and Less” and “Oh My God”. Kaiser Chiefs were nominated for a Mercury Prize, have won 5 Brit awards, an Ivor Novello Award, have had four Top 10 albums and performed at the Olympic Closing Ceremony in 2012. Known for his energetic live performances, Ricky’s previous work with the BBC has seen him host Never Mind the Buzzcocks, T in the Park (2008) and appear on The Culture Show.

Ricky said: “Who doesn't want to spend their Saturday night with Kylie Minogue? I spent last winter yelling at The Voice and both Sir Tom Jones and will.I.am were total superstars. I'm just lucky the Kaiser Chiefs have rubber stamped my temporary loan!"

Ricky joins Marvin Humes, Emma Willis and, of course, Kylie Minogue as the latest additions to The Voice UK family.

Welcome to the team Ricky!
