With Rita Ora jumping ship to The X Factor, there is a vacant red chair on BBC talent series The Voice, and sources claim FKA twigs is the hot favourite to take it.

Producers are reportedly drawn to the Two Weeks singer, real name Tahlia Debrett Barnett, for her musical credibility and rising star power thanks to her engagement to Hollywood actor Robert Pattinson.

A source told the Daily Star: "Rita may have brought glamour to The Voice but she wasn't too clued up on musical knowledge.

"She didn't know who The Monkees were."

The insider adds that BBC bosses believe the 27-year-old singer will add "a cool and credible vibe" to the series.

Since her emergence into the spotlight in late 2013, the MOBO nominee has risen through the ranks of the music industry, performing on several US TV shows.

The musician's debut album, LP1, was released in August 2014 and peaked at number 16 in the UK.

The British singer may have competition on her hands for the chair though, as BRIT award-winner Paloma Faith is also said to be a candidate for the next series.

An insider told The Sun that producers find the Changing hitmaker's outspoken personality a major draw.

The source said: "Bosses think she would be great. They have been impressed by her forthright opinions and love her out-there style."

Earlier in June 2015, Ora, 24, announced that she is joining the upcoming series of ITV's The X Factor, alongside BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show DJ Nick Grimshaw.

The I Will Never Let You Down singer said in her statement: "I am excited to be coming back to The X Factor – I had a ball here in 2012.

"This is a journey I can't wait to embark on to find some talented singers. It's the new generation taking over. Boom!"
