The Voice UK 2017 on ITV: First look trailer revealed but when does it start?

When does The Voice UK start on ITV?

The Voice UK trailer

Here's a very first look at The Voice UK with the show's premiere trailer.

"Hang on to your seat," says The Voice UK presenter Emma Willis warns in the first promo of the now ITV series.

"Wow, this is dope," adds Will.i.am, who along with Emma is sticking with the show as it moves from the BBC.

They're joined by the returning Sir Tom Jones and new faces Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale on this year's line up of superstar coaches.

In this preview, all four take their seats for a blind audition like no other – with the power of the voice they hear launching them into space and zero gravity.

The first teaser comes before an extended look at The Voice UK 2017 this weekend, airing on Sunday night (December 4) during the series finale of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here on ITV.

The new series will launch in January - with the exact start date still to be confirmed - and it's not just the channel and judges that have changed.

While the spinning red chairs and buzzers are back, there is a slight twist to the format.

On the BBC series, once an audition was over, all the chairs turned so the coaches who didn't hit the buzzer still saw acts and offered them advice or reasons why they hadn't spun.

But now those coaches that don't spin will NOT get to speak or even see the act who auditioned.

Host Emma Willis explained: “If you don’t push your button for a contestant, you don’t get to see them… If nobody turns then nobody gets to see who’s sung."

Sir Tom Jones confessed: “I think it’s a good idea because one of the worst things is when you haven’t pressed your button and you turn around and you’ve got to explain to the people why you didn’t.

"I know if I was in that person’s position and nobody turned then I’d want to get out of there!”

The new series of The Voice UK will air on ITV in the new year.
