The Voice Forced To Fend Off Fix Claims Following Paloma Faith's Reported Confession

Paloma Faith has found herself at the centre of a fix scandal.

The Changing singer, who is a judge on UK talent show The Voice, allegedly told The Mirror that Saturday night's shock decision to eliminate former Liberty X star Kevin Simms was pre-arranged.

Paloma reportedly said: "Kevin was the hardest battle round ­decision. I wasn’t sleeping because of it.

"So Ricky and I agreed ­beforehand that he would take Kevin.

‘I sent Kevin an email afterwards to tell him I thought he could win the whole competition and to explain that I knew he’d be saved."

"It would have been 100 per cent ­ridiculous to get rid of someone that talented."

Naturally there was uproar, particularly as Kevin was a firm favourite, however a spokesperson for the show has since claimed the star was "misquoted."

The spokesperson said to The Metro: 

"The conversation between Ricky and Paloma before that battle record was her asking Ricky to steal Kevin if she didn’t choose him.

"He did not agree or disagree."

We don't know what to believe anymore.
