Jennifer Hudson has teased a “proper falling out” between herself and Olly Murs on the new season of The Voice.
The 37-year-old singer returns to screens as a coach on the ITV singing competition on Saturday (05.01.19) night.

She revealed she got “upset” with her fellow coach Olly during the show, because although they’re friends off-screen, he “stabbed her in the back” when it came to battling for their acts.
She told The Sun newspaper at The Voice launch:
“I did get upset with Olly. He really gave it to me. I thought he was my friend. We had a proper falling out.
“He gets me cookies and sends me text messages, but then it turns out he’s battling against me. He just stabbed me in the back, it was so painful.
“I said we weren’t friends any more. It did get really ugly. I couldn’t believe he went that low to do me over like that to me.”
And Troublemaker singer Olly, 34, says he felt “genuinely upset” by the exchange, and went to apologise to Jennifer as soon as the cameras stopped rolling.
The pair remained tight lipped on which act it was they were fighting over, but it seems Olly came out on top.
Jennifer and the former X Factor finalist will be rejoined on the show by fellow coaches Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am, as well as host Emma Willis, when the first episode airs.

It’s Jennifer’s third series of the show, as she joined when it moved to ITV in 2017.
Olly has been part of the team for one previous series and will be looking to make his mark this time round.
