The ITV reality series aired its second episode tonight, but the first segment flew by so quickly that fans were left crest-fallen when the first advert break had already rolled around after just 12 minutes.
Completely taken aback by the hopeful’s sultry tones and powerful voice, Olly slammed his buzzer before struggling to contain himself in his seat.
Kade achieved four turns from the judging panel and decided on the hugely-successful music producer will.i.am to be his mentor, but the all-too-brief performance had fans racing to Twitter to complain.
One person wrote: “One act in and we go to commercial. F**k sake. #TheVoiceUK.”
Later, the episode saw 34-year-old singer Olly get hot-under-the-collar from sizzling female contestant Ivy Paige.
“Twenty minutes in and we’ve heard one audition. At this rate the final will be around Christmas! #TheVoiceUK,” another added.
A third asked: “One song one ad break – is this the way it’s gonna be? #TheVoiceUK,” followed by: “So #TheVoiceUK has been on 18 minutes and so far we’ve had one singer…”
To make matters worse, viewers were only treated to one act and the judges chatting about the evening before they were forced to sit through commercials for another five minutes.
As Ivy continued to flirt and tell the presenter that she “wanted him”, Olly even forgot his own name before managing to direct the starlet’s gaze towards the base of his seat.
