Cape Town - The Voice UK’s stellar panel of coaches – Jennifer Hudson, Olly Murs, Sir Tom Jones, and will.i.am - are all confirmed to return to their iconic red chairs for the new series. 

The new season will start airing in South Africa on ITV Choice (DStv 123) on Sunday, 6 January at 18:00 - less than 24 hours after its premiere in the UK. 

The coaches will be seeking the very best solo singers, duos and - in a competition first this year - trios. 

Alongside the powerhouse coaching panel, Emma Willis is also back to present: "I’m so happy we’re about to get going all over again. I’ve learnt to expect the unexpected with performances, some make me wanna bust a move, some give me goosebumps, and some make me cry like a baby!

"No day is the same, I’m forever wondering ‘where have you been?’ and with trios signing up this year, it gives us an added layer."

The winner of The Voice UK will be set on the road to realising their artistic ambitions with the ultimate prize of a recording contract with music giants Polydor Records.
