PICTURES! The Voice UK 2017 judges in first official photoshoot

The Voice UK 2017 judges have been revealed in a brand new glam photoshoot.

The search for a new vocal superstar begins as The Voice UK launches on ITV in 2017.

The channel is taking over the show for its sixth series having previously aired on BBC One for the past five years.

The Voice UK starts on ITV this Saturday (January 7) and there are a few changes.

Will.i.am is back - the only coach to have appeared on every series so far - while Sir Tom Jones returns after being axed by the BBC last series.

Joining the pair are global music legends Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale, the front man of rock group Bush.

This weekend the four piece will kick off their quest to uncover the best vocal talent that Britain has to offer, with this year’s winner scooping a life changing record contract with Polydor Records.

Emma Willis returns, but not her co-host Marin Humes, to preside over the action as each vocalist, or singing duo, seeks to claim a place in one of the coaches’ teams at the Blind Auditions.

As always, the acts will perform to the backs of the coaches who must decide whether or not a hopeful goes through on voice alone.

If a coach likes what they hear, they can spin around to get that contestant for their team.

But if more than one coach turns, things get interesting as the coaches must then pitch to the singer who has to decide which team to join.

Those that make it through the auditions will go forward to the battle rounds, one step closer from making the live shows later this Spring.

The Voice UK 2017 starts this Saturday night at 8PM on ITV.
