Boy George: 'I’ve been told I’ve been too critical on The Voice'

Boy George says people view him as a "critical" coach on The Voice.

The singer is one of two new additions to the line-up of the BBC reality show.

Its auditions have been filmed ahead of the new series airing on January 9.

Boy George told the Radio Times that he doesn't pull any punches when it comes to being honest.

The Culture Club man said: "I’ve been told I’ve been too critical. But on a lot of these shows, some 17-year-old kid is told, "You’re amazing," and no, what you are is potentially amazing.

"But you’re pitchy. You hit some bum notes. You impersonated this person. That’s what they need to hear. And you can say that without being nasty. A lot of young people don’t want criticism.

"But if you can’t take criticism, I don’t really want you on my team."

The Voice meanwhile will head to ITV from 2017 onwards.

This year's series sees George joined by fellow newbie Paloma Faith in addition to the returning and Ricky Wilson.
