The Voice UK Kids 2018 is back on ITV with a brand new twist this summer.

The new spin-off made its debut last year and returns for a second outing in July.

The Voice Kids is again open to solo singers between the ages of seven and 14, with the winner receiving a life changing prize to be announced in due course.

But for 2018, there will be a brand new format.

The show will air over the space of just 8 days, with new episodes each night.

"It's official, the kids are taking over," Will.i.am teases in a new trailer.

"We have eight days full of surprises," he adds.

Last year's coaches will.i.am, Pixie Lott and Danny Jones will all return to The Voice Kids in 2018, ITV previously confirmed.

Will said: “I am honoured to be back on The Voice Kids, inspiring and sending kids on their way to do awesome stuff with their lives.

"Danny is amazing and Pixie is awesome. Pixie balances off the wild antics Danny and I have!”

Pixie added: “I’m so delighted to be back for series two of The Voice Kids. I’m also looking forward to spending time with Will and Danny again and having our Voice Kids family back!”

And Danny commented: “I had an amazing time on the first series of The Voice Kids and I’m super excited to be returning to the red chair, hitting the button again and uncovering some of the best UK talent our youth has to offer."

Emma Willis also returns to hosting duties on The Voice Kids following the last series of The Voice UK.

The Voice UK Kids begins this Saturday at 8PM (July 14) on ITV
