Here's your very first look at The Voice UK 2018 with its brand new line up of coaches.
The search for a new vocal superstar is back as The Voice UK returns to ITV in 2018 next Saturday night (January 6) on ITV.
Pop sensation Olly Murs joins Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am to complete the superstar panel of coaches – and Emma Willis is back as presenter.
New coach Olly is no stranger to talent shows, first finding fame on The X Factor, where he came second in 2009. He has gone on to sell more than 17 million records worldwide and notched up four UK No.1 albums and four No.1 singles.
His most recent album 24 Hrs hit the No.1 spot in November 2016 while in 2017 he played two consecutive tours selling in excess of 600,000 tickets.
Singer, songwriter, producer and entrepreneur will.i.am returns for his seventh series – the only coach to appear on The Voice UK since the very beginning.
Legendary artist Sir Tom Jones has had huge success in a career spanning six decades, selling more than 100 million records and clocking up 36 Top 40 hits in the UK and 19 in the US.
Grammy, Oscar and Bafta-winnng artist Jennifer Hudson returns after winning the 2017 series with her act Mo Adeniran and fresh from her stint as a coach on The Voice’s US version. This is the first time a coach has appeared on The Voice on both sides of the Atlantic at the same time.
Emma Willis again returns to present The Voice UK after completing hosting duties on The Voice Kids in the summer.
Meanwhile, The Voice UK’s digital platforms will bring fans all the backstage gossip as Jamie Miller, a finalist on the last series, returns as digital reporter.
Since appearing on the show, he has signed a US recording deal with Atlantic Records, home of Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and Aretha Franklin.
This year’s winner will again scoop a recording contract with music giants Polydor, home to global stars Take That and Ellie Goulding as well as the UK’s biggest breakthrough artists including The 1975 and Years & Years.
