Cee Lo Green has revealed he’s been offered a coaching role on the UK version of talent contest The Voice.

The Forget You singer, who appears on the US show alongside Christina Aguilera and Maroon 5 star Adam Levine, also said he’d previously been offered a judging gig on this year’s UK X Factor.

Cee Lo told the Independent on Sunday he planned to accept the coaching job on The Voice, which is set to debut on the BBC next year.

He said: “Maybe I’m speaking a bit prematurely, but I plan to take it – we just have to work out a schedule that is not completely overbearing.

“But I think if they do it right we will have concluded with [The Voice in America] and I will be totally free to do it.”

Cee Lo added: “[Simon Cowell] actually invited me to do The X Factor first, in the UK – he wanted me to take over his seat.

“This was around the time that both of these options were being tossed about. We just didn’t get back to each other in a timely fashion.

“And The Voice were just a bit more adamant about the commitment – and committing to me. So here we are.”
