ITV have revealed a first look at The Voice UK 2018 blind auditions.

Clips from the new run appear in a brand new trailer for what will be the second of at least three series on ITV.

And there are a few changes to the show next year.

In the short teaser we see Sir Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson and Will.i.am back in their famous spinning red chairs.

And for the upcoming series, they're joined by brand new coach Olly Murs.

"I know just how life changing it can be," says Jennifer in this preview.

Will.i.am adds: "The thing that makes me turn my chair is vocal talent."

Sir Tom says: "If you're going to step into the ring, you've got to give it your best shot."

And Olly comments: "It's the biggest performance of their lives."

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 next month.

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!"

The Voice 2018 launch date on ITV has been confirmed for Saturday, January 6 at 8PM.

ITV have confirmed that Emma Willis will be back to front the show having hosted on BBC One and the first ITV series earlier this year.

She said: “I love this time of year because, if I’m lucky enough to get invited back, it means I get to eavesdrop in on some of the most sensational singing talent that this country has to offer whilst hanging out with the megastar coaches.

“It’s an absolute treat to get to work on The Voice UK, I love every minute of it, and I can’t wait to get started."
