ITV has revealed the coach line up for The Voice UK and it’s not just will.i.am who is returning.
This morning it has been announced that Sir Tom Jones will return to the show, after being axed by the BBC in favour of Boy George on the last series. That decision didn’t go down well with fans of the show and it didn’t sit well with Sir Tom either.
Sir Tom says, “I’m looking forward to returning to my big red chair on The Voice UK. I had some great times on the show and I can’t wait to again discover and help some brand new talent. And of course be back with my pal will.i.am.”
New coaches for ITV’s first series of the show are Grammy and Oscar-winning star Jennifer Hudson and Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale.
Jennifer says, “I couldn’t be more excited to join the amazing panel of coaches on The Voice UK! The UK has always been so supportive of me since the beginning of my career so I’m really looking forward to sharing my point of view with the contestants and especially Team JHUD. Discovering new artists has always been important to me and the UK has no shortage of talent, so I can only imagine what this experience will be like for everyone involved. I can’t wait to get going and start developing each individual’s own sound!”
Gavin says: “I am so thrilled to be joining The Voice UK. I have always been extremely proud to fly the flag for British rock music and I can’t wait to join this incredible panel and help discover some new talent.”
The Voice UK will be presented by Emma Willis and will debut on ITV in early 2017. The winner of the series will sign a recording contract with Polydor Records.
