Viewers may not yet know Brock Ashby’s name – but they may recognise him as the artist who makes coach Kelly Rowland’s jaw drop in recent promos for The Voice.
Kelly, 37, is visibly impressed with the ripped personal trainer’s good looks in a sneak peek of season seven, where the Destiny’s Child singer tells him: ‘I can’t get over the fact that you just so damn hot!’
In an exclusive interview with Daily Mail Australia this week, Brock admitted he was left speechless thanks to Kelly’s compliments.

‘When she was speaking to me and talking about me, I think I just turned quiet. I didn’t know what to say. It’s Kelly Rowland – you know!’ he explained.
The Sydney-based hottie admitted Kelly had an effect on him that he doesn’t usually get from other women, with Brock divulging he ‘hasn’t felt like that in a while’.
‘Even just talking to her on stage, like I’m not shy with talking and stuff like that but as soon as I get in front of someone like that I just tensed up and got all weird,’ Brock confessed.
‘I was like a nervous school boy having their first kiss – that’s the feeling I get,’ he said, before quickly clarifying: ‘Not that we kissed, by the way!’
‘It’s Kelly Rowland – you know!’ Genetically blessed Brock admitted Kelly’s presence and compliments had him uncharacteristically speechless
And while Brock confirmed he is still single, he said he wouldn’t be using his Voice experience to make a move on Kelly, who wed beau Tim Witherspoon in 2014.
‘She’s a married woman! I definitely don’t want to get into that situation!’ he laughed.
Continuing, Brock joked: ‘I can do boxing but I’ve never had a real fight so I’d like to leave it like that!’
‘She’s a married woman!’ Brock laughed that he wouldn’t make a move on Kelly, joking he didn’t want to get caught up in a fight with her husband Tim Witherspoon (pictured)
The Voice, which returns for season seven on Sunday night from 7pm, looks to be one of the hottest series yet.
As well as being smitten with Brock’s well-sculpted physique, Kelly also appeared to have eyes for a number of other genetically blessed contenders.
In the same promo, the US songstress could be seen telling another artist she was impressed by his tattoos, and later flirted with a contestant before realising he was only 19.
The Voice airs on Channel Nine on Sunday at 7pm and Monday and Tuesday at 7.30pm
No prizes for guessing why Kelly’s impressed! The Destiny’s Child singer seemed smitten with Brock, telling him: ‘I can’t get over the fact that you just so damn hot!’
