Singer Kavana tries out for The Voice

A row has broken out over the familiar faces appearing on The Voice.

Nineties pop singer Kavana, Danny from Hear'Say, Cleo Higgins from Cleopatra and soul singer Nate James are all taking part in the BBC One show.

The Daily Mirror reports that sources at ITV, which broadcasts Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway in the same timeslot as The Voice, have criticised the show.

"These shows should be about finding a star out of the blue not resurrecting former pop glory," the source was quoted as saying.

But a BBC source hit back: "There are over a hundred people in the live auditions and only a handful with careers behind them - and not all of those get through."

Kavana, whose hits in the 1990s included I Can Make You Feel Good, has tweeted: "Soooo I'm now allowed to say that I will indeed be on the The voice next week".

In the first series of The Voice, Sean Conlon from 5ive and Deniece Pearson from Five Star auditioned.

Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
