The Voice viewers gobsmacked to discover Will.i.am’s real age

The Voice fans were floored on Saturday as they learnt judge Will.i.am’s real age.

The Black Eyed Peas star revealed how old he was after Cedric Neal’s incredible audition, which saw Will turn around alongside all of his fellow judges: Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones and Olly Murs.

After musical theatre performer Cedric announced that he was 43 years old, Will interrupted that he was the same in age, in a bid to win his alliance.

However, viewers at home could not believe the Scream & Shout singer’s "impossible" confession, rushing to social media to express their surprise.

"Hmm was actually most SHOOK to find out will.i.am is 43!? #funfact #impossible #thevoice," one viewer wrote, in disbelief.

Meanwhile, another agreed, writing: "Neither Will nor this guy look 43 #thevoice".

Despite fans of the show being unconvinced Will is as old as he says, he was born on 15 March 1975, meaning he was indeed telling the truth.

Unfortunately for Will, even sharing the same age as Cedric wasn’t enough to deter him from picking legend Sir Tom as his mentor instead.
