With The Voice UK 2015 coaches now confirmed, we want to know what you think of the new line up.

Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am and Welsh crooner Sir Tom Jones are both back for what will be their fourth series, alongside last year's newbie, Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson.

The trio will be joined by pop princess Rita Ora, who was today confirmed as the new fourth judge, replacing Kylie Minogue.

"So excited to be part of; and for my team to win The Voice this series!!" Rita tweeted. “Looking forward to the blind rounds and spinning in my big red chair. EXCITED!”

Once again the BBC has stuck to its favourite format with the line up, with one famous female chart topper out for another.

We hope that Rita however will prove a bit more interesting and outspoken on the panel than some of her predecessors, bringing some much needed energy to the new series.

Ricky was great last year and Will.i.am always seems to bring a completely different personality - and at least 10 new words - to every show.

Then there's Sir Tom, who we could never be mean about.

What do you make of the new coaches? Will they help boost ratings or will you be turning off? Add your comments below or tweet us @tellymix!

The Voice UK begins filming its latest Blind Auditions in Salford next week, with the new series set to hit our screens in January.
