Ricky Wilson has admitted he would reclaim his char on 'The Voice' if they let Sir Tom Jones come back
Ricky Wilson would return to 'The Voice UK' if Sir Tom Jones does.
The 38-year-old Kaiser Chiefs frontman previously said he had no plans to return to the BBC One talent show, when it moves to ITV later this year, but has said he would change his mind if they brought the 'Not Unusual' hitmaker back.
Answering fans question on a live Facebook chat with The Sun newspaper's Bizarre columnist Dan Wootton, Ricky said: "What would it take to get me back? It would take Tom Jones. If he did it I would do it."
It comes after an insider said that the 76-year-old Welsh music legend is "keen" to return to the show, despite being sensationally let go by the BBC in August last year, and lashing out at the broadcaster for its decision.
A source previously said: "Tom is keen to get back on the show - something he wouldn't have been if it was still on the Beeb rather than ITV.
"It's being seen as a masterstroke to get him back as he's worried worked with them all - including Elvis - and commands respect."
Meanwhile, Ricky admits he will be "jealous" of whoever replaces him on 'The Voice'.
He said: "Whoever is in that chair I'm going be jealous of because I know how much fun it is."
And he joked that he will be watching the new series "through gritted teeth".
He said: "I'll watch it through gritted teeth. It's funny because I'm quite excited about it because I do really like the show and I think it's a great way of finding talent whether they go on to do big things or not but he teaches them a lot and it taught me a lot."
