Will.i.am, Danny Jones and Pixie Lott return to the turning chairs for the new series this year – joined by new coach Paloma Faith.
Again hosted by Emma Willis, The Voice UK Kids is open to talented young singers between the ages of seven and 14.
Up for grabs is a £30,000 bursary towards their musical education plus a dream family holiday to Orlando.
