Olly Murs joins the sexist line up of the Voice

Olly Murs joins the sexist line up of the Voice
We awake today to the news that Olly Murs will be the fourth judge on The Voice UK, alongside will.i.am, Tom Jones and Jennifer Hudson, which wouldn’t normally be of interest to anyone besides the show’s audience of two.
However, the press are turning this into a X-Factor vs The Voice battle by saying Simon Cowell isn’t happy former X Factor man Murs is, oh look, none of that is important. What’s important is that a music competition on prime time British TV has three male and one female judges, when all the acts are men and women.
Basically, there’s no good fucking reason why there isn’t a second woman on the panel, even Strictly has finally managed some equality. The BBC get moaned at for sexism, but here is ITV doing the same.
