Reports that Chezza was to appear on Irish screens in a new talent contest are incorrect.

REPORTS THAT SINGER Cheryl Cole is to be handed a spot on RTÉ’s version of The Voice talent contest are wide of the mark.

The Irish Daily Mirror reports today that the former Girls Aloud singer and X Factor judge has been offered a six-figure sum to appear on the programme alongside former Commitments frontman Andrew Strong and The Saturdays member Una Healy.

However, TheJournal.ie understands that such a move is extremely unlikely in the current climate and that RTÉ are more likely to stay closer to home when choosing the judging panel for the programme.

Details of the judges have not yet been released and are not expected for another few weeks at least.

The Irish version of The Voice is a spin off of the The Voice in the United States which currently features singer Christina Aguilera and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine as judges.

The show is unique in that judges do not see the singers, thus choosing them solely on the quality of their voice. It has also enjoyed success in Holland.

The Voice, commissioned from Screentime Shinawil Productions for RTÉ, will replace the All Ireland Talent Show which has been scrapped. for a show that the state broadcaster claimed last week would “put the emphasis firmly on the quality of the participant’s vocal performance rather than their appearance.”
