Also returning is Sir Tom Jones, who missed out on the final BBC series but was brought back by ITV earlier this year.

Joining the guys is Jennifer Hudson, a new coach for 2017 who has been confirmed for the 2018 series.

But not everyone is back: Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale has left and been replaced by a VERY different musical star.

Taking Gavin's seat is former X Factor finalist and one time co-host of the Simon Cowell singing show, Olly Murs.

Olly said: “I'm absolutely buzzing about being a coach on The Voice UK and can't wait to sit in the big red chair alongside will, Jennifer and Tom. I'm excited to mentor new artists and without doubt, I'm in it to WIN!"

Tweeting from the set today, Olly shared a snap of himself alongside the other judges.

"Great first day spinning! #thevoice," he captioned the picture.

Meanwhile, Emma Willis returns to host the series.
