PICTURES! The Voice UK 2013 backstage at auditions!

The Voice UK 2013

Here's a sneak peek backstage at The Voice UK 2013 auditions, which began filming in Manchester this week.

From these pictures it's clear we can expect more of the same from the coaches, with over the top theatrics from Danny, some dazzling outfits from Will.i.am and of course a bit of sexiness from Jessie... and Sir Tom!

The foursome have been building up their teams for the new series, which will start on BBC One next Spring.

It seemed that Will.i.am was back to usual tricks in a bid to win the singers to his team, telling one hopeful: “If you come on my team, we’ll ALWAYS wear matching jackets.”

He told a second: “I’m not trying to sell it, I’m just trying to tell it. And if you didn’t hear, I might have to yell it!”

And Sir Tom Jones hasn’t changed either, with some more name drops on the first day.
