Mark Owen 'In Talks To Be The Voice Judge'
Take That star reportedly in negotiations to appear on new BBC talent show.
Looks like Mark Owen.
The singer is reported to have been offered a deal by the The Voice, which has been a big hit in the US with Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green on board.
Jessie J has already been signed as one big-name judge/mentor and it is now claimed that producers have got Mark at the top of their list.
An insider told The Daily Star Sunday: "Getting Mark to sign up would be a huge scoop for The Voice. The format has been a massive success in America and the BBC are determined to make sure they get the highest quality of judges possible.
"Gary has been a big hit on The X Factor and Beeb bosses love the idea of getting one of his bandmates to go head-to-head against him on a rival show. Ideally producers want a huge international name but they also want a home-grown megastar.
"Although Jessie J is big right now, she's relatively new. Mark is perfect because he's not only had a hugely successful 20-year career, he's also relevant now. And signing him up to be a rival to Gary is even more of an incentive."
Kylie Minogue had been mooted as a judge, but was ruled out because the corporation reportedly couldn't afford the amount she was asking for.
