The Voice UK’s panel of coaches Olly Murs, Sir Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson and will.i.am are all confirmed to return to their iconic red chairs for the new series.
Whilst they will be picking the very best solo singers, duos and, in a competition first this year, trios. The four music superstars will commence filming the Blind Auditions next month with the series launching on ITV early next year.
Now onto Olly…although he has only experienced one series on the TV show, he’s returning for one more with plans to find the best talent on the show and convince the artists that he is the best coach.
From his TV reality background on The X Factor, Mr Murs has proved himself as a much loved singer and performer with a reputation to match for his cheekiness and that Essex boy smile but will his stint on primetime TV delay his music career? We went off to find out!
With five multi-platinum albums and countless sold out arena tours, Olly Murs made his debut as a coach. Since then, he has been putting the finishing touches to his hotly anticipated sixth studio album. His new music set to be released later this year, Olly said: “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!”
According to our people in the know, Olly’s team will be lining up a number of TV appearances with a string of live shows / radio appearances in the pipeline for spring 2019.
Alongside the powerhouse coaching panel, Emma Willis is also back to present, she said: “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 will be set on the road to realising their artistic ambitions with the ultimate prize of a recording contract with music giants Polydor Records, the new series will air on ITV early next year.
