Famous for presenting 4music’s Trending Live and formerly Big Brother’s Bit On the Side, AJ Odudu is a rising star in the UK. As a television presenter, social media star and model, AJ Odudu has a stellar career. The British-Nigerian became popular for highlighting the norm of the Nigerian tradition of parents arranging partners for their children. She became famous when she and her mother embarked on a road trip around Nigeria in Channel 4’s ‘Manhunting With My Mum.’
Now, The Voice UK’s online coverage is getting another shake-up in 2019, with AJ Odudu joining the show as its new backstage reporter! AJ will be snooping backstage throughout the ninth series of the ITV talent contest to bring fans all the latest gossip. From the Blind Auditions to the grand final, she will get exclusive scoops from the superstar coaches and undertake ‘secret challenges’.
“I’m so happy that I am joining The Voice UK family as their Backstage Reporter,” AJ said on Instagram. “Teaming up with one of my fave hosts Emma Willis and iconic coaches Sir Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson, Will.i.am and Olly Murs is just part of the reason why I can’t keep calm. I’m so freaking excited to fan girl all over them! “I thoroughly love the show and will work with abundant enthusiasm, whilst bringing a healthy dollop of northern charm. I might even kiss a coach. Who knows?! “Get ready for music and mayhem!”
The new series of The Voice began filming last month and is due to hit our screens in January.
