The Voice creator plots changes to UK show after criticism

The creator of The Voice has admitted that the UK version could be changed for its second series.

The UK version of the show launched on the BBC as a rival to X Factor and also Britain's Got Talent, which ended up as a Saturday night rival.

Speaking to the Radio Times, The Voice creator John De Mol said that he will meet with the BBC to discuss "new ideas" for the series after it came under some criticism from viewers. He said:

"We'll have a meeting with the BBC to come up with some new ideas to make the live shows more exciting. The role of the coaches can be bigger. In the semi-final, the coaches were just watching the talent perform. They had no influence. That's something we should change. On Saturday, it was 100 per cent up to the audience."

De Mol meanwhile remained tight-lipped on the future of the show's four coaches, which includes the likes of Jessie J. He added:

"We'll talk about the coaches with the BBC right after the final this Saturday. As far as I'm concerned we have four great characters but it's too early to say."
