While The Voice UK is all about the contestants, there’s plenty of music talent hiding behind those coaching chairs too.

And it turns out Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am are planning to combine a bit of that musical flair for a duet.

“I spend a lot of time with Will off screen, whenever I can,” Tom told The Sun.

“When I was living in Los Angeles I saw Will nearly all the time out there.”

No word on whether the recording will feature will.i.am’s pals in The Black Eyed Peas, but it’s a distinct possibility as they continue their Fergie-less existence.
