Jennifer added: “I couldn’t be more excited to join the amazing panel of coaches on The Voice UK!

"The UK has always been so supportive of me since the beginning of my career so I’m really looking forward to sharing my point of view with the contestants and especially Team JHUD.

"Discovering new artists has always been important to me and the UK has no shortage of talent, so I can only imagine what this experience will be like for everyone involved. I can’t wait to get going and start developing each individual’s own sound!”

Finally there's Gavin, who has racked up huge success on both sides of the Atlantic with his band Bush. He's also performed as a solo artist, selling close to 20 million records in the US alone.

Gavin said this evening: “I am so thrilled to be joining The Voice UK. I have always been extremely proud to fly the flag for British rock music and I can’t wait to join this incredible panel and help discover some new talent.”

But who's hosting it all?

As previously confirmed by ITV, The Voice UK will be presented by Emma Willis and will air early next year.

The winner will scoop a life-changing recording contract with music giants Polydor Records. Polydor is home to global music stars Take That and Ellie Goulding, as well as the UK’s biggest breakthrough artists, including The 1975 and Years & Years.
