PICTURES! See The Voice UK 2018 first blind auditions on ITV

Here are all the pictures from the first round of blind auditions on The Voice 2018 UK.

This evening sees the start of series seven as The Voice UK returns on its brand new home on ITV.

And there are a few changes.

Gavin Rossdale has left and Olly Murs has joined in his place, alongside returning judges Will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones and Jennifer Hudson.

Once again the four coaches have their backs to the stage so can only base their decision to hit the button and spin their chair on what they hear.

Each of the contestants who step out on stage must hold their nerve as the coaches search for their team of talented singers.

If they like what they hear, the coaches can spin to select that singer for their team.

If more than one coach turns, things get interesting, as the coaches use every trick in the book (including plenty of name dropping) to persuade the very best acts to join their team.

But once again for this year, if no coaches turn then the contestant leaves stage immediately with the coaches staying with their backs to the stage.
