Paloma Faith broke down in tears following an explosive row with fellow coach Boy George on The Voice.

Boy George criticises Faith when she pretends to fall asleep during his pitch for former Liberty X star Kevin Simm.

The former Culture Club singer says: "Excuse me, Palaver," to which she replies: "Is it finished, is it time for us to wake up?"

George says: "That's extremely rude. Very rude. Anyway, you're amazing Kevin."

As Faith tries to make her own bid for Simm, their row escalates when Boy George tells her one thing she has not done is have a hit in America.

"I've had a few," he tells her.

Faith then ran off the stage in tears.

A source said BBC bosses had to tone down the episode to make it more family friendly following the row.

Viewers will see the on-air row on Saturday's show at 7.45pm on BBC One.
