In the wake of his split from Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin is throwing himself into a brand new project.

His suggestion? Act like Mick Jagger.

"Cover the area," he tells hopefuls Audra McLaughlin and Megan Ruger. "You need to bring out your Mick Jaggers a bit, because he goes everywhere. You feel as an audience, 'Oh, he's coming over to me'. And that’s why he’s the best frontman in the world."

"…The more you feel you’re being sung to, the more that will work," he adds as he sits on the side of The Voice stage.


It was announced on Tuesday that Chris and his wife of ten years Gwyneth had called time on their marriage.

In a statement entitled 'Conscious Uncoupling' posted on Gwyneth's lifestyle website Goop, the couple said, "We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate."

It continued, "We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time.

"We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."

The couple are said to have flown to the Bahamas with their children Apple and Moses before the announcement was made.
