Bo Bruce and Danny O'Donoghue got very close in 2012

Bo Bruce was very close to mentor Danny O’Donoghue on The Voice last year but the 28-year-old actually reckons Will.i.am is actually the best coach on the show.

It’s hard to blame Bo for her dig at Danny, 32 – after all, he’s admitted to using his role on The Voice to eye up potential girlfriends.

‘I’m a ladies’ man,’ The Script frontman recently confessed.

‘There are a lot of pretty girls on the show. I’m telling them they’re gorgeous because I’m single and I’m looking.

‘I certainly wouldn’t rule out dating a fan or a contestant. Ever!’

Meanwhile, Bo‘s claimed she used her feelings for Danny as the basis for songs on her album.

On her debut single Save Me, released in April, she sang: ‘You made me want you and I didn’t want to. Why would you wake me if you’re not going to save me?’

The song sparked speculation that Danny had been the one to cool their relationship – but he’s since denied inspiring the lyrics.
