The Voice UK 2017 coaches prepare for the battles in style

The Voice Uk coaches

The Voice UK 2017 coaches have been getting ready for the battles in style.

The Voice UK reaches its Battles this weekend, with the superstar coaches mentoring their teams at the world famous Abbey Road studios.

In honour of the iconic setting, will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones, Gavin Rossdale and Jennifer Hudson pay homage to the classic zebra crossing image by stepping out on it themselves.

During the Battles episodes, the coaches tell their teams just how iconic Abbey Road is.

Jennifer says in the show: “We are in a very special studio, ya'll know that right?

"The Beatles have recorded here, Pink Floyd, Amy Winehouse, like so many amazing artists, so that's why you guys are here. Are you ready?"

Sir Tom adds: "Of course, the Beatles recorded here.

"Outside is the famous zebra crossing, I crossed it in 1960… something!"

It’s a double bill of The Voice UK this weekend as the current crop of 40 contestants are almost halved with episodes both Saturday and Sunday.

Each coach will pair up the acts in their teams a series of sing-offs. Both acts will share the stage, performing the same song in front of the coaches and a live studio audience.

After each performance, all the coaches will offer their opinion on the better performer but the pair's mentor will decide alone who the winner is.

However it may not be the end of the road for the loser thanks to the return of the steal twist, allowing each coach to pinch one of the acts that their rivals reject for their own teams.

The first half of The Voice UK 2017 battle rounds will air Saturday night, 25th February at 8:30PM.

The second half will be back on ITV on Sunday night at 7PM.
