The Voice UK 2017 coaches judges

Here's a first look at The Voice UK 2017 on ITV as the coaches take their seats.

The picture was shared this evening by the official ITV Voice Twitter account.

The Voice UK kicked off its sixth series earlier this week with a red carpet launch.

While the show may not be on TV until January next year, filming started in Manchester yesterday with the new line up of coaches.

Next year the show is moving to ITV but there will be some familiar faces as Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am is back, having been on every series to date.

Joining Will is Sir Tom Jones who returns to the show after being axed from the latest BBC One series.

They'll be sitting the famous spinning red chairs alongside two newbies: There's American singer Jennifer Hudson who we're VERY excited to see as well as British rocker Gavin Rossdale from band Bush.

The coaches will hold the usual blind auditions over the next week as they build their teams of talented singers.

Meanwhile, Emma Willis will be presenting the show having done so for the past two years on the BBC.

Just like when the show was on BBC One, at the blind auditions the acts will step out on stage to sing to the backs of the coaches.

If a coach likes what they hear, they can hit their buzzer to spin around and pick up that act for their team. If more than one coach turns, the power shifts back to the contestant to pick which team to join.

But there's a new twist on ITV.

Emma revealed: "You only get to turn and see that person if you press your button for them. So if noone turns for somebody, they never get to see who it was.”

She quipped: 'No lighty, no looky!”

The Voice UK will air on ITV next year.
