Danny O'Donoghue thinks Sir Tom Jones is the "front runner" in 'The Voice' as he's impressed with the quality of singers he's got in his category
Danny O'Donoghue thinks Sir Tom Jones is the "front runner" in 'The Voice'.
The Script frontman says his fellow coach on the BBC One talent show has the strongest group even though he initially thought he'd blown his chances.
He said: "Initially I thought Tom had the weakest team but now I have seen him become a front runner. He got real trigger happy on the first day of filming. He literally had five people on the first day, so I said 'Dude, you need to slow down.'
"We had three more days of filming. But everyone has got acts that could win. It is going to be exciting."
However, Danny - who is also joined on the judging panel by will.i.am and Jessie J - is confident his acts will do well as he knows they have the "likability" factor.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It has been hard work, and it is like banging your head against a brick wall. Some people leave before it cracks, they crack. I guess I have been pigheaded enough to stay stood there and to try to knock it down.
"I have done my homework, I know the stats. I have gone for the likability factor and all my artists are nice and with integrity. I would put money on at least three of mine, if they don't win it, to go on to become top artists."
