They claim that the show will be axed to make way for Ireland's Got Talent, which will be fronted by none other than Louis Walsh.

Some names which have been rumoured to join Louis on the new show have been Boyzone's Keith Duffy, Linda Martin and Westlife's Shane Filan.

We reached out to RTÉ to clarify the fate of The Voice of Ireland and they replied with this statement:

"We are very happy with the performance of this series of The Voice of Ireland which averages half a million viewers.

As is the case every year with the Voice of Ireland a decision on re-recommissioning will happen after the current run has ended. This is normal practice for RTE with a series of this nature."
