The Voice UK 2018 contestants: Meet the teams in the knockouts!

The Voice UK contestants so far

Here’s what The Voice UK 2018 teams look like after the battles and heading into the knockouts.


Last month saw the four coaches complete their four teams with Olly Murs, Sir Tom Jones, and Jennifer Hudson having each picked ten talented artists.

In Saturday evening’s episode, the battles concluded as the coaches cut their teams in half with a series of head to head musical duets that only one act could win.

However the steals were back, giving each coach the ability to pick up an extra acts that their rivals sent home, pinching them for their own teams in the knockouts.

So after the all three rounds of battles, eliminations and steals, here’s how the teams for the knock outs look…
