It seems will.i.am has had enough of spinning around and getting all dizzy in that chair and stuff. Yes, really.

The 40-year-old has reportedly quit The Voice after four years of being a coach.

Talking to the* Daily Star on Sunday*, a source said: “Will has been in discussions with producers but decided he doesn’t want to return this year. He’s disappointed Rita Ora left and is frustrated the show has failed to produce an international star.

“He was especially upset his former contestant Leah McFall failed to set the charts alight. As a result, Will has told BBC bosses he thinks he’s achieved everything he can achieve on the show.”

The insider added: “Will quitting is a massive blow for The Voice after already losing Rita. Bosses are doing everything in their power to change his mind but it’s not looking promising.”

The Black Eyed Peas star is yet to comment - Will, say it ain’t so!

Welsh legend Sir Tom Jones, 75, who also joined The Voice in 2012, is expected to sign up again along with Kaiser Chiefs front-man, Ricky Wilson, 37. There are also rumours of Kylie Minogue returning to the show.

Filming is due to start in Manchester next month and the new series is expected to return in the New Year.
