Kylie Minogue is reportedly being lined up as a possible replacement for Jessie J on the next series of The Voice.
According to the Mirror the pint-sized Aussie – who originally found fame on Neighbours in the 80s – has been offered £500,000 to join the show when it returns in early 2014.
It follows reports that she previously turned down a £1m deal for a spot on the panel when the series originally kicked off in 2012.
“Kylie ticks all the right boxes so we are pulling out all the stops,” a show source told the Mirror.
“Fingers crossed she will sign on the dotted line shortly.”
The panel for the show remains uncertain after both Jessie and The Script’s frontman Danny O’Donoghue confirmed they would not be back next year.
Will.i.am is reportedly set to return despite suggestions he would quit if other panellists did.
The Black Eyed Peas rapper also hinted on Twitter he would not be returning after his act Leah McFall – who had been the hot favourite to win – lost out to Andrea Begley in the final.
Speculation has mounted over Tom Jones’ future on the show, with some reports suggesting he had also quit – although the BBC’s creative director Alan Yentob dismissed these, saying the veteran singer ‘enjoyed working on the show’.
Show bosses are reportedly also looking for a younger person to complete the panel – with JLS’s Marvin Humes and Spice girl Mel C among the rumoured names.
The series is also likely to undergo a few other changes next year in a bid to retain viewing figures – which were high for the blind audition stages but tailed off once the knockout stages began.
“We have got really high hopes for The Voice with a mixture of the good bits from the first two series along with some new tweaks,” a source told the Mirror.
Other reports have suggested the show may be screened in February next year, which would give it a head start over ratings rival Britain’s Got Talent.
