“The Voice” coach Blake Shelton admits he’s scared of flame and co-host Gwen Stefani.

“If y’all think I’m scared of @gwenstefani… you’re absolutely right,” Shelton tweeted Tuesday. “That doesn’t mean I’m going to play nice! #TeamBlake #TheVoice”

Shelton and Stefani Shelter in Oklahoma

The duo had been isolating in Oklahoma with Stefani’s sons Kingston, 14, Zuma, 12, and Apollo, 6, along with other family members, People reported. And they all celebrated Thanksgiving together early this year, Stefani said.

“We were actually on his tour right when we got shut down,” Stefani told Dua Lipa on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”. “My brother was out with us. So his whole family came out. So it was me, my three boys, Blake, and then my brother, his wife, their two little babies, kids, and then her sister and then a friend.”

Stefani said life on the ranch has been a novelty. They had their own little – or not so little – pod going there.

“I think there were like 15 people,” she added. “It was really actually a lot of fun at first. Because it’s like, all of a sudden, work is over and you just get to indulge, and just being on this ranch… every day was like a new thing.” 

Returning for a New Season

Season 19  of “The Voice” premiered on October 19, and it brought the pair back together in the coaches’ seats after Stefani stepped away in season 18.

“Having Gwen back is very comforting to all the coaches,” Shelton told Entertainment Tonight. “We were all able to just go back to the game we already knew. We all know how to play each other at this thing. It felt like the old gang got back together again, and we’re having a blast.”

The couple are back on set despite the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s different, definitely different,” Stefani said. “Everyone has all these rules and we’re all being safe – it’s just actually a little bit more exciting than usual, even though I didn’t think that was possible because it was already super exciting.”
