Sir Tom Jones held an impromptu sing along at The Voice UK 2017 auditions.

In a preview clip from the new series, Sir Tom is seen entertaining his fellow coaches and live audience with a cover of Great Balls Of Fire.

As the panel wait for the next hopeful to step out on stage, Will.i.am remarks: "Don't be nervous, just bring that fire!"

"We could do Great Balls Of Fire," quips Sir Tom.

And with that, the Welsh crooner bursts into song with the show's live band quickly joining in.

Sir Tom had been axed from the BBC version of the show for its last series but ITV have brought him back for 2017 together with Will.i.am.

The pair will sit alongside two new faces, Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale, in the famous spinning red chairs.

On joining the show, Jennifer said: "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."

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

The start date for sixth series of The Voice UK has not yet been officially revealed, however the first Saturday of January - January 7 - looks like a good bet.

Celebrity Big Brother's Emma Willis will again be back hosting, having fronted the show on the BBC One, however JLS star Marvin Humes will NOT be a part of the series.

Meanwhile, in a new blind auditions twist, coaches will NOT see or be able to talk to an act if they don't spin around. That means if they don't press their buzzer, they'll never know who the voice was coming from...

The Voice UK airs from January on ITV.
