Jessie J herself appeared to confirm his involvement, telling a tabloid newspaper that she is pleased to be a fan of who she will work with.

Earlier today, the BBC announced that Tom Jones and The Script singer Danny O'Donoghue will judge alongside Jessie J and will.i.am.

Following his fans' disappointed reaction, Young tweeted that he lost the role due to the decision to hire someone "more rock" than himself.

"The voice came, the voice went. They wanted to go more rock... Should have dusted off my Leather jacket! Hey ho, (sic)" he said, before adding: "Hang on... Just got jimmy page on the Line. I'm commiserating him."

In what could be a tweet related to the news, Young last night lamented: "Words escape me. Life is sometimes a bitch."

The Voice UK is expected to air in the spring.
