Danny Foster: I've been 'waiting' for The Voice
Former Hear'Say singer Danny Foster has been "waiting" for a talent show like 'The Voice' after previously rejecting other reality TV shows.
Danny Foster has been "waiting" for a talent show like 'The Voice'.
The former Hear'Say singer - who shot to fame as a member of the band formed on TV show 'Popstars' in 2000 - has been approached to appear on a number of celebrity reality shows such as 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' but didn't want to do anything that wouldn't showcase his musical abilities.
Danny - whose audition for 'The Voice' will air tomorrow (04.05.13) - said: "I didn't fancy eating kangaroo testicles in the jungle.
"I've been waiting for a talent show that was based on singing."
Despite his former bandmates Kym Marsh and Myleene Klass going to enjoy success in other fields - Kym in 'Coronation Street' and Myleene as a presenter, model, and classical musician - Danny insists he isn't jealous because he doesn't feel they have done any better than he has because they don't have pop careers.
He added to The Sun newspaper: "I have never seen that they have done better than me.
"Their advertising deals and stuff like that is fair enough but musically I am still singing and that is what I got into 'Popstars' for.
"I never went into it to be a model or an actor. I went in to be a singer. I wish them the best."
Danny also admitted Hear'Say won't be appearing on the next series of 'The Big Reunion' as the quintet are too busy with other commitments, with former 'Dancing On Ice' winner Suzanne Shaw contracted to an ice show and Noel Sullivan starring in a touring stage production of 'Priscilla Queen of the Desert'.
He said: "I spoke to the guys this week and we were chuckling about 'The Big Reunion'. But everyone is doing their own thing - the girls are very busy and have contracts.
"When 'The Big Reunion' was on, people were asking whether Hear'Say were going to do it.
"It was brilliant TV but maybe it is best left to nostalgia."
