The Voice 2014 UK: First picture of Kylie Minogue, Ricky Wilson on the panel!

Kylie Minogue - The Voice UK 2013 coaches

Here’s a first look at The Voice UK 2014 panel, as Kylie Minogue and Ricky Wilson join the line up.

Both Jessie J and Danny O’Donoghue have left the BBC One series ahead of its third run next year.

The show’s blind auditions began filming yesterday in Manchester, as the first hopefuls performed for the new coaching line up.

Replacing Jessie J is Aussie popstar Kylie, understood to be getting a whopping £500,000 fee to take part.

“I’m very excited to become a coach on The Voice UK,” she said earlier this year. “The search for new talent is such an important aspect of the music industry and The Voice UK gives us all a part to play in that.”

Meanwhile, Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky replaces Danny, and joked: “Who doesn’t want to spend their Saturday night with Kylie Minogue?

“I spent last winter yelling at The Voice, and both Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am were total superstars. I’m just lucky the Kaiser Chiefs have rubber stamped my temporary loan!”

The pair will sit on the panel alongside Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones, who are both back for Series 3.

The Voice UK returns to BBC One in January.
