Kylie Minogue has quit 'The Voice UK' due to a clash with her upcoming 'Kiss Me Once' world tour
Kyle Minogue has quit 'The Voice UK' after one series.
The pint-sized pop star - who replaced Jessie J as a coach on the singing competition for its third series - has decided to bow out from her role after just one year due to a schedule clash with her upcoming 'Kiss Me Once' tour.
She wrote on her Facebook page: "Hi Lovers, thanks to all of you for your incredible support throughout this past season of 'The Voice UK'.
"I'm sad to say that, due to the timing of my European tour, I won't be back for Season 4. I absolutely loved my time on the show, and I'll miss all of the incredible people who were a part of my experience.
"I hope to see you all on my 'Kiss Me Once' tour, and wish continued success to everyone at 'The Voice'!"
The 45-year-old singer joined the panel with fellow newcomer Ricky Wilson, sitting alongside veteran coaches will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones.
Although she's quit the British version, Kylie is expected to be a coach on the Australian version of 'The Voice' with will.i.am this year.
'The Voice' producer Moira Ross said: "Kylie has brought her own very special magic to 'The Voice UK' and we have loved having her on the show. We wish her well for her tour and hope to welcome her back in the future."
