BBC boss is "truly sorry" Tom Jones was upset by The Voice UK axe

26 August 2015 2:18 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Sir Tom Jones was not a happy bunny when he found out he had been axed from The Voice UK, and the BBC's director of television is very sorry he felt that way.

The pop icon revealed he had "no idea" that he would not be returning to the BBC One singing competition after four series, and has since been replaced by Boy George on the coaching lineup.

"I've got huge respect for Tom and I'm truly sorry he's upset, because I am a big fan of his," TV chief Danny Cohen said.

"I think he's a gentleman, I think he's an extraordinary figure in music and you'll have seen the huge respect that all of the artists have had for him on The Voice throughout."

Cohen added he was "excited" about the new panel, which also includes Paloma Faith alongside the returning Ricky Wilson and will.i.am.

Olly Murs criticises The Voice for Tom Jones axe: "They clearly didn't do it the right way"

24 August 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Olly Murs has had his say on The Voice UK's decision to axe Sir Tom Jones from its forthcoming series.

The X Factor host said that show bosses "didn't do it the right way", adding that the way Jones has been treated isn't "very nice".

Jones revealed on Friday (August 14) that he was only informed one day before the new-look Voice panel was revealed by the BBC that he would not be coming back.

The Welsh music legend claimed he'd been dropped with "no consultation or conversation of any kind", and chided BBC executives for "sub-standard behaviour".

Murs told The Sun: "I was shocked, and I do feel that the way that Tom has been treated wasn't very nice. Obviously he is really upset about it.

"They clearly didn't do it the right way which is a shame, because he's a really lovely guy and an iconic artist who I've always admired. »

Boy George dissed The Voice back in 2013: 'It's nothing to do with creativity or growing'

19 August 2015 3:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It could be an awkward first day on The Voice UK's set for Boy George, after a not-so-positive past tweet about the singing contest has re-emerged online.

Back in 2013, the star described the BBC show's vocal battle rounds as "pointless", and said the programme had nothing to do with "creativity or growing".

The Voice, it's a TV show and these pointless vocal battles are proof that it's nothing to do with creativity or growing! It's drama!

George tweeted: "The Voice, it's a TV show and these pointless vocal battles are proof that it's nothing to do with creativity or growing! It's drama!"

It's not the first time a celebrity talent show judge has gone back on their opinion though, with Rita Ora previously turning down The X Factor for the "freedom" of The Voice - only to leave the BBC show after one series and »

Boy George sounds off on Tom Jones's departure from The Voice UK: "The man is an absolute legend"

17 August 2015 3:37 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Boy George is finally addressing the BBC's decision for him to replace Sir Tom Jones on The Voice UK.

Jones revealed on Friday (August 14) that he was only informed one day before the new-look Voice panel was revealed by the BBC that he would not be coming back.

The Welsh music legend claimed he'd been dropped with "no consultation or conversation of any kind", and chided BBC executives for "sub-standard behaviour".

His replacement Boy George largely remained silent on the matter until today (August 17), when he used Twitter to pay respect to Jones.

"I have absolute respect for Tom Jones. The man is an absolute legend. Huge fan," he tweeted today.

I have absolute respect for Tom Jones. The man is an absolute legend. Huge fan!

Boy George has demanded BBC chefs meet his dietary requirements after being made a coach on 'The Voice'. The 54-year-old star and Paloma Faith were announced as the new judges of the singing competition last week and it's now been reported that he's provided bosses with a list of foods he doesn't want to be delivered to his dressing room. A source shared: ''George avoids lemons, butternut squash, onions and cauliflower. ''But if he wants a certain dish, which would usually include one of these ingredients, the BBC chefs will be happy to prepare him something separately.''

8 reasons we're absolutely gutted Sir Tom Jones has left The Voice

14 August 2015 7:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Voice UK is having a revamp! Gone are Rita Ora and Sir Tom Jones, and in their place are newbie coaches Paloma Faith and Boy George.

Now, we're very excited about what the new coaches will bring to the show, and we're not saying goodbye to Rita Ora because she's jumped over to The X Factor. But Sir Tom Jones? We're really going to miss The Silver Bear.

1. He is a fan of um, penis doodles

Ricky Wilson has revealed that when he joined The Voice UK, he bonded with Sir Tom by doodling willies, saying: "I've yet to meet a man who won't laugh at a picture of cock and balls." The idea of Sir Tom giggling at crudely pencilled penises just fills us with so much joy that we can barely take it.

2. He took his acts to play dinosaur mini golf

Boy George surely doesn’t want to hurt him but ex-Culture Club frontman replaces Welsh crooner as judge for fifth series of BBC1 singing show

It’s not unusual for TV presenters to get a little upset when they are unceremoniously dropped from a programme. And Sir Tom Jones, a stalwart of BBC1 talent show The Voice, was certainly that.

The singer criticised executives on the programme, claiming that he was sacked on Thursday “with no consultation or conversation of any kind”.

With visions of London’s King’s Road circa 1985 in my mind, I witnessed Culture Club’s return to New York City at The Beacon Theatre. Despite some rough patches, the re-formed bunch kicked off with my personal favorite, “Church of then Poisoned Mind” and took off from there. The Club also played some new songs, destined to end up on their next album, Tribes, due out next year. The most impressive of the lot was “More Than Silence.,” ...Read More

Last Week On Late Night, 7/20/15: Conan says teens don’t like weed, and John Oliver says Americans need to eat more food

20 July 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The summer is a confusing time for late night shows. With vacation time, shows are often off, then on, seemingly at random. When shows do air, there’s fewer dangerous animals on, and more affect-less athletes. And yet, some really funny things happen on late night during these lesser watched months. Jimmy Fallon nearly lost a hand, Conan rode into Comic-Con with a Mad Max war band. We got to see Colbert interview Eminem on Monroe, Michigan public access TV. Jon Stewart’s Daily Show month long “moment of zen” farewell continues, streaming every episode back-to-back, available globally. It wasn’t all bad.

Last week, Bill Hader and Amy Schumer were doing the rounds for Trainwreck, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler were reunited with Jimmy, Emma Stone was on Conan, Meyers got a dose of Schumer and Jim Gaffigan, and Corden horsed around with Ian McKellen. Plus, John Oliver took »
