Olly Murs revealed that he keeps getting confused while filming The Voice final because they have already started production for the 2021 blind auditions.
The upcoming last episode of The Voice, which airs tonight, will see Will.i.am’s act Gevanni Hutton, Meghan Trainor’s Brooke Scullion, Olly’s Blessing Chipata and Sir Tom Jones’ act Jonny Brooks, battling it out in a bid to be named winner of the ninth series.
After a seven month hiatus thanks to the pandemic, The Voice returned last week for series nine’s long-awaited semi-finals, where the remaining nine acts were whittled down to just four.
However, it turns out, despite the gap between the auditions and the live shows, TV bosses have decided that it is full steam ahead as the blind auditions for the 2021 series has already begun.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk ahead of the final, Olly began: ‘They’ve already recorded the first blind audition so we’ve already recorded that, so now we’re filming the next stage next month, which is the battles.
‘It’s actually quite confusing for us coaches, because we’ve kind of got like two shows working at the moment, so I’m confused where I’m at.’
Earlier this month, the Troublemaker singer explained how different the final would be this year as the judges won’t be able to celebrate with the winner thanks to coronavirus filming regulations.
‘As a show, it’s different and it’s a little bit strange, but we’re just learning how to cope with it all and make sure everyone is safe and we do the best possible show we can,’ he continued.
‘That’s all we can do, really. ‘ITV has got this amazing wrap-around screen, so we’re able to zoom in and chat to different people on the screen at different points. It was really, really fun.
‘I think all us coaches were saying it was really nice to see the real fans in their lounges at home, watching the show. It was kind of surreal really.’
The Voice final airs on Saturday at 8.40pm on ITV.
