The Voice 2015 spoilers: Judges can steal TWO acts from rivals' teams

THE VOICE UK 2015 coaches

There's a new twist on The Voice 2015 this year with each of the four coaches allowed to steal TWO contestants from their rivals' teams, we can reveal.

The 'Steal' twist was a new part to the original format originally brought in for the second series in 2013.

They take place in the battle round section of the show which follows the blind auditions.

In the Battles each Coach must pair up their acts to sing against each other in a vocal showdown to decide who will progress to the next stage.

After each Battle, the Artists’ own Coach will decide who progresses to the next round and who to send home.

But with the twist it's not the end of the road for the losing act.

Instead the Coaches can “Steal” a losing Artist for their own team. So if they missed out on an Artist they loved during the Blind Auditions, now’s their chance to finally grab them for their team.

If more than one Coach tries to Steal the same Artist, then they have to pitch to the Artist once again to persuade them to join their team, in the same way as the Blind Auditions.

In the past each Coach could only Steal one Artist during the Battle Rounds, so had to make that Steal count however this year there will be two steals.

Voice host Emma Willis said: "It's nice to have that extra person and it makes a big difference".

It ultimately means that after the battle rounds next weekend, each of the teams will have eight remaining acts.

For now, The Voice UK blind auditions this Saturday night on BBC One.
