Singer's manager Will.i.am is a mentor on the BBC programme
Will.i.am, 36 – US manager of Cheryl, 28 – has signed up to be a mentor on The Voice and is said to be talking to producers.
‘Cheryl should be releasing her single when The Voice is on TV so it makes sense to combine the two,’ says a source.
The shows will go head-to-head on Saturday nights – and the BBC are desperate to come out on top.
‘Cheryl would be a massive ratings winner and scoop for The Voice,’ the source tells the Daily Star.
‘Although it’s not a done deal yet, it’s only the pen and paper bit that needs to be completed.’
