Danny O'Donoghue wants Sir Elton John and Adele to join 'The Voice' in place of Sir Tom Jones and Jessie J

Danny O'Donoghue wants Sir Elton John to join 'The Voice'.

The Script frontman - who along with will.i.am will return for a second series on the talent show - thinks the 'Crocodile Rock' hitmaker would be the perfect replacement for Sir Tom Jones, who is rumoured to have quit the programme along with Jessie J.

Asked who he would like on the panel, he told Free Radio: "Elton John. I've thought about this long and hard. I think Elton John needs to take over Tom's position.

"And I'm still open - I think possibly Adele, because she'd come on for Jessie. I think that would be one hell of a line-up."

However, Danny thinks if his dream line-up came true, he would also have to be replaced.

He added: "Then you'd have to probably rethink me, and have someone better than me on. But I think that would be a really, really great line-up."

Tom - whose contestant Leanne Mitchell won the show - recently said he wants to stay on the show but only if he is happy with his fellow coaches.

He said: "I think I will do another series. We are talking about it now. But there are a couple of things that need to be ironed out.

"One of the things I said I need to know is who the other coaches are, because I don't want to be sitting there with somebody I don't admire or particularly like... there are a few of them!"
