It's all change on the panel this year.

Pop sensation Olly Murs is joining will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Jennifer Hudson to complete The Voice UK’s panel of superstar coaches as the search for a new vocal talent returns to ITV.

Olly – who has notched up four UK No.1 albums and four No.1 singles – will climb into his red chair for the first time this weekend when the Blind auditions kick off in Salford.

The Essex lad first found fame on fellow ITV talent show The X Factor, coming second in 2009, and has since gone on to sell more than 17 million records worldwide.

His most recent album 24 Hrs hit the No.1 spot last November while this year he has played two consecutive tours selling in excess of 600,000 tickets.

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!"

Will it be any good?

Well that of course remains to be seen. Word from recording is that the panel have been settling in nicely with Will.i.am up to his old tricks while Olly has been getting flirty with the acts.

And finally, what happened to last series' winner?

Last series' winner Mo is currently in the studio recording his debut album, which is due for release early next year.

His song from the final, Unsteady, hit No.3 in the iTunes chart while his debut EP Globetrotter went straight to No.5 on the iTunes album chart.
