Ricky expected to cause a riot in The Voice betting
Following the announcement that the Kaiser Chief's star is to complete next year's judging panel on The Voice the bookies are anticipating he will make an instant impact, which has seen him chalked up as the 3/1 second favourite to be 2014's winning mentor.
Fellow newbie Kylie Minogue is the red-hot favourite with odds of 5/2, but despite leading inaugural winner Leanne Mitchell to victory, Sir Tom Jones is left to battle it out with Will.i.am as the 4/1 outsiders.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Ricky's not shy of an opinion or two and we're expecting him to spice up The Voice. Kylie's a certainty to be fighting off the contestants which easily secures her position as favourite."
