Last week we reported that Green and his fellow coaches will all be returning to 'The Voice' for Season 2. Now comes news that he may be adding even more work to his already punishing schedule.

According to 'The Daily Star' Green could be pulling double-duty in 2012 as he's been asked to reprise his role as voal coach and mentor on the U.K. version.

'The Voice' U.K. is slated to premiere on the BBC sometime next year and Green said "I have been offered the coaching gig. I plan to take it. ... We just have to work out a schedule that is not completely overbearing."

'The Daily Star' also reports that 'The Voice' execs are looking to hire ousted 'X Factor' judge Cheryl Cole to work alongside Green.

Premiering in April, 'The Voice' has been a breakout hit for NBC. Based on hit Dutch reality singing competition 'The Voice of Holland,' it was renewed for a second season in May.

'The Voice' Season 2 is due to premiere early 2012 on NBC.
