The Voice UK judges pop up in Coronation Street in unexpected crossover

The Voice UK judges at Corrie

Here's one TV crossover no one was really expecting, with The Voice UK stars popping up on Coronation Street.

The Voice UK's coaches - Will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones, Gavin Rossdale and Jennifer Hudson - took a trip to the cobbles while filming the blind auditions in Manchester last year.

With The Voice UK's studio based at Media City UK in Salford which is also the home of Corrie - it seemed natural to bring together the stars of two of ITV's biggest shows.

... and let the coaches see inside Britain's most famous pub!

Beverley Callard, who plays Liz McDonald on the ITV soap, said “It was such an honour showing the coaches round the Rovers, my late mum was the biggest Tom Jones fan of all time and my Grandchildren are huge fans of Will.

"My mum would have been so thrilled to know he was behind the bar with me and I was a very cool grandma when I took home my photos of me showing Will how to pull a pint.

"Will even said he’d like to film a pop video in our pub!"

She added: "Jennifer was so glam and gorgeous, Liz would love to have her work behind the bar, Gavin told me he grew up in a pub so he was a natural when it came to how everything worked.

"And can you imagine Karaoke nights in the Rovers if these guys worked for Liz!”

The Voice UK airs this Saturday 8pm on ITV.
