Since then Tom has thankfully made a full recovery and has focused on his role as a coach on The Voice UK.
He admitted to feeling guilty after he rejected one of the contestants in the first episode of this series.
He shared in a Q&A with his fellow judges Olly Murs, Anne Marie and will.i.am: “Yes… The fella was so good as well, I did say it, he didn’t do anything wrong… it’s just something to take him over the top. What that is I don’t know but I didn’t hear it.
“But listening to him again, we only get one shot at it! You hear it once and there’s no time to review it, you can’t think, ‘Let me think about that’, you either do it or they’re gone. And that’s what happened when I saw that singer, just listening to him sing and I thought, ‘Why the hell didn’t you press the button,’ and I shouted in the thing, ‘Press the button you mug!'”
