The Voice coach regrets getting so close to his protégée

Their sizzling on-screen chemistry had us all talking.

But Now has learnt that The Voice’s Danny O’Donoghue, 31, has told friends he wishes he hadn’t got so close to Bo Bruce, 27.

Not only has it scuppered his chances of winning back his girlfriend of four years Irma Mali, it’s
also brought unwanted publicity for his band The Script.

A source tells us: ‘Danny got caught up in the show. He was trying to do his best for Bo – she’s been going through a really hard time as her mum is terminally ill with pancreatic cancer.

‘They formed a close bond.

‘But now he’s kicking himself for losing the person that really matters to him: Irma.

‘He’s begging her to give it another shot but after all the rumours, she says there’s no chance.’
