Will.i.am carries Olympic Torch
Thousands of people cheer on Voice coach
THE Voice coach will.i.am has played a star role in the journey of the Olympic Torch.
Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am was cheered on by thousands of people as he ran through Taunton, Somerset, carrying the Olympic flame.
US-born music producer will.i.am was a surprise addition to the line-up on day three of the Olympic Torch Relay.
Will.i.am, 37, said: “That was like a surreal moment.”
Meanwhile, BBC1 boss Danny Cohen said he would “love” all four celebrity coaches on The Voice to come back for a second series.
He said the “constructive criticism” of Sir Tom Jones, Jessie J, will.i.am and Danny O’Donoghue was “one of the great aspects of the show”.
