Cape Town - Jessie J is joining The Voice Kids UK as a new coach alongside, Danny Jones and Pixie Lott who all return to their big red chairs for a third series of the show which starts on ITV Choice (DStv 123) on Sunday, 9 June at 18:00.

Not only will the talented youngsters now have four coaches to try and impress as they sing for the star panel but also, for the first time, the young performers have been able to enter the contest as a duo. Each coach will have nine spots to fill on their teams, for either solo singers or double acts who are all aged 7-14.

A founder member of the Voice family, Jessie J has previously been a coach on The Voice in the UK and Australia. Fresh from a 2018 tour of the US, China and Europe, the multi-platinum selling star will be looking for young stand-out singers to be part of Team Jessie.

Says the singer: "I love kids, I love to sing and I love to share all I know about singing and performing. The idea of combining those three things again on The Voice Kids is a dream come true. I am grateful to have been asked back. I am so excited to share my experience with the young singers on the show, who are just starting to discover themselves as singers.

"I will be protective of their experience emotionally, as well as vocally. It's a huge moment in their lives and I am happy I get to be someone to help and hold their hand. It's a fun and awesome panel to be joining. I love Pixie and Danny and I can't wait to be sitting alongside my friend will."
