The Voice UK 2013: Danny O'Donoghue has already found a star

The Voice UK Danny O'Donoghue reckons he's already found a star on this year's second series.

Although he would say that, wouldn't?

The Script star told us he thinks that this year's talent is almost as almost as big as his quiff.

"We had 30,000 people audition and the standard is on another level to last year," he explained.

This year each of the coaches will select twelve acts from the blind auditions, which have already been filmed.

Danny boasted: "I've got multiple stars in my group. I feel like I've got one or two who's going to be big."

Danny and his fellow coaches - Jessie J, Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones - kicked off their talent search in Manchester last year.

And it sounds like the group enjoyed being back together on the show for a second year.

"There's been a little bit of chair surfing, there's the same banter,"

He added: "We've had some late nights, me and Tom. He may be seventy but he's still got it!"

The Voice UK 2013 auditions will begin airing on BBC One later this Spring.
