Cee Lo Green has been offered a judging role on the UK version of 'The Voice'
Cee Lo Green will judge 'The Voice' when it airs in the UK.
The 'Forget You' hitmaker currently sits on the panel of the US version of the singing competition - which sees hopefuls perform for the judges without them seeing their face - alongside Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine and has admitted he is currently looking to rearrange his schedule to allow him to be a part of the British show, which will be broadcast on BBC1.
He is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: "I have been offered the coaching gig. I plan to take it.
"We just have to work out a schedule that is not completely overbearing."
Cee Lo's admission comes shortly after it was announced that all four judges would return for a second season of the US version of the programme, following the success of the first series.
NBC executive Paul Telegdy said: "Our fantastic coaches were integral to the tremendous success of 'The Voice' this year and we are thrilled that they are all returning. We look forward to building season two and making 'The Voice' an even greater experience for fans."
'The Voice' - which has also seen former 'X Factor' stars Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue linked with judging roles - is due to begin later this year.
