Paloma Faith seems to have hinted she is quitting The Voice after just one series. The popular singer told fans that this could be her "last foray" into reality TV, following Saturday night’s show in which her two remaining acts – Jordan Gray and Heather Cameron-Hayes – were knocked out in the semi-finals."Last night I went down the ship power dressing in possibly my last foray into reality TV shows," the 34-year-old later wrote on Instagram. "I may not be built for then but I am definitely built for getting lost in music. Caught in a trap. No turning back."

Paloma Faith seemed to suggest she was leaving The Voice in her Instagram post

Paloma recently admitted that she was struggling to cope with the attention and criticism she receives on social media as a result of the show. "I'm quite fragile about it," she said. "I have moments when I don't want to get out of bed because I don't want to go back."However, her spokesperson told the Metro that the star won’t be leaving anytime soon, prompting speculation that Paloma will return when the series moves from the BBC to ITV1 later this year.Long-serving judge Ricky Wilson, meanwhile, has confirmed he will "bow out" following the end of this season. "This is my last one anyway," he told the Sun. "Yeah. I was going to bow out gracefully. I don't think ITV would want me. They would want to have a totally new show."


The Voice is moving to ITV after this series

Neither nor Boy George have revealed whether or not they will be quitting their roles.The BBC lost The Voice to ITV – which is also the home of The X Factor – after refusing to enter a bidding war with its competitor.Announcing the news in a statement, Mark Linsey, Acting Director of BBC Television, said: "The BBC is incredibly proud of 'The Voice' but the fifth series which starts in January will be our last."We always said we wouldn't get into a bidding war or pay inflated prices to keep the show, and it's a testament to how the BBC has built the programme up - and established it into a mainstay of the Saturday night schedule - that another broadcaster has poached it."
