The Voice UK 2013: Danny O'Donoghue teases 'big changes'

Danny O'Donoghue (The Voice UK)

The Voice UK coach Danny O'Donoghue has promised that the second series of the show will be bigger and better.

Danny and his fellow coaches begin filming the show with the blind auditions next week in Manchester.

This year will see quite a few changes to the show after viewers tuned out after the audition stages last year.

Danny promised: ”We’re going to come out with bigger teams and the battle rounds will be spread over about two weeks, not one weekend.

”By the finals there’ll be a condensed number so viewers can go, ‘Oh, that’s my favourite.’ ”

Speaking to the Daily Star this week, Danny also insisted that the fact last year's winner Leanne Mitchell didn't set the charts alight wasn't a problem.

Leanne has yet to release her debut album, with her debut single - a cover of Whitney Houston's Run To You - failing to reach the Top 40.

”She wasn’t on my team so I can’t feel that much disappointment. She won the show, you know, in the final she was technically the best singer. Was she technically the best artist? No. But that’s just my opinion," he said.

The Irish singer added: ”She was definitely the best singer on the night, but it was unfortunate that other people didn’t get a look in, ones that would have suited pop music better.”
