The Voice UK 2019 start date has been confirmed for the brand new series.

Jennifer Hudson, Olly Murs, Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones will all be back as coaches in the New Year.

The Voice 2019 will begin on Saturday, January 5 at 8PM on ITV.

And in a promo for the upcoming season, the four piece form a band - but are in need of a singer.

Sir Tom plays the drums, Olly and Will take on the guitars and Jennifer is on the keys as they play Eurythmics’ hit Sweet Dreams.

Even host Emma Willis gets involved, appearing as a sound engineer at the side of the stage.

The only thing missing is a vocalist, prompting a 'Singer Wanted' sign at the end of the teaser.

The coaches will be back in their famous spinning red chairs for the blind auditions in January.

Once again, they will be seeking the very best solo singers, duos and, in a competition first this year, trios.

Speaking about signing up for her second series, Jennifer said: “I'm so happy to be re-joining my coaches at The Voice UK. I’m ready and excited to discover some beautiful voices.”

Olly Murs also made his debut on The Voice last series and said of returning: “Now I’ve got one season under my belt, I can’t wait to see what my second season has in store for me. Last year I managed to get seduced and picked some entertaining performers. The other coaches might think they have worked me out but I’m coming back with a bang, just you wait!”

Meanwhile, The Voice regular Sir Tom added: “I’m raring to go on the search for some talented new singers. Bringing in the trio element will present a new sound that could shake everything up. "

Finally, there's Will.i.am who has been a coach on the show since Day 1.

He said: "The UK always surprises me with some of the freshest artists and this keeps me coming back for more. By adding trios, we’re raising the bar, so bring it on UK!”

The Voice UK will be back on ITV in 2019.
