Only two Voice of Ireland coaches look set to return to the series this year.
None of the judges from last year who could return – Bressie, Kian Egan and Jamelia – have signed a contract and Dolores O’Riordan is definitely out.
Now Voice of Ireland bosses want to give the panel a bit of a shake up – with Bressie most likely to also walk away.
Is he out? Bressie is tipped to leave the Voice of Ireland
In the past he has ranted about how the RTE show has yet to create a proper star, and currently isn’t recording any music himself.
Sources told Goss.ie that producer Larry Bass wants to “freshen the panel” in a bid for more ratings glory fourth time around.
“Obviously Dolores isn’t coming back this year – but that doesn’t mean the other three definitely are,” a source said.
Returning: Both Kathryn and Eoghan are coming back
“It’s a new season this time around and everything has to be looked at – and that includes the coaches.”
Presenters Kathryn Thomas and Eoghan McDermott are however definitely returning, as the show started taking applications from hopefuls.
Last year rocker Brendan McCaughey ended up winning the show.
