Singer Cee Lo Green has cancelled his slot on the British version of singing contest The Voice, because it conflicts with the second series of the U.S. show.
The F**k You hitmaker already sits on the panel Stateside alongside Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

Green admitted earlier this year he had been offered and accepted a role on the program when it launches in Britain – but he’s now had to axe the deal.

A source tells Britain’s The Sun, “He’d have been a great signing but he has to commit to the U.S. show.”

Rocker Lenny Kravitz, Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole and singer Jessie J have all been rumored to be in talks for a slot on the series.
