The Voice UK 2019: will.i.am dealt cruel blow just hours before ITV show

THE VOICE UK 2019 continues this evening with more blind auditions as Jennifer Hudson, Olly Murs, Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am hoping to find an incredible singer.
However, as the competition heats up it seems will.i.am may be in trouble.

The Voice UK judges are all competing to find this year’s winner and bookmakers are already backing Jennifer to be the triumphant judge after Nicole Dennis joined her team.

However, it seems will.i.am is struggling with bookmakers losing confidence in the Black Eyed Peas star.

will.i.am’s odds of winning the latest series have been slashed to 7/2.

Sir Tom is also in trouble as his odds have been cut to 3/1 to win the competition.

Speaking about the judges chances of winning this year, Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead told Express.co.uk: “Jennifer was the winning manager back in 2017 and has a strong early hand with Nicole as part of her team.

“She’s got all the ingredients for another successful tilt at winning The Voice.

“Will.I.Am is our outsider of the four after a couple of lean years since his last win in 2014.”

Meanwhile, fans are already certain Nicole will win the competition after just one week of auditions.

Her odds of winning have been slashed to 3/1 while Molly Hocking follows close behind with odds of 6/1.

Harry added: “There’s an awful long way to go and we’ll be seeing plenty more talented acts over the next few weeks.

However Nicole made a strong impression on the judges and also punters, who have backed her into the early favourite to win The Voice 2019.”

Will will.i.am be able to find this year’s winner this weekend after another round of auditions?

Last week’s show saw Sir Tom come face-to-face with a singer connected to his past.

Peter Donegal appeared on the show to sing one of his father Lonnie Donegal MBE’s songs.

Sir Tom was shocked when he discovered Peter was Lonnie’s son and they performed I’ll Never Fall In Love Again together.
