The Voice UK: Judges, contestants and spoilers on the new series!


The Voice UK 2017 has kicked off on ITV - here we take a look at all you need to know from the show's new coaches and judges to spoilers about what to expect.

What time is The Voice UK on TV next?

The Voice 2017 start date was previously confirmed for Saturday, January 7 on ITV at 8PM as the very first round of blind auditions kick off. The series then continues every Saturday night until the Spring.

The next show is tonight (Saturday, January 21) again at 8PM.


Who are The Voice 2017 coaches?

This year once again sees another refreshed line up of judges as the show moves to ITV.

Global music legends, Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones and Gavin Rossdale embark on their quest to uncover the best vocal talent that Britain has to offer, with this year’s winner scooping a life changing record contract with Polydor Records.

Who's hosting it all?

Emma Willis will preside over the action as each vocalist, or singing duo, seeks to claim a place in one of the coaches’ teams at the Blind Auditions, just like on the BBC.

But her former co-host Marvin Humes won't be back.

What else is new?

This year the format has been changed so if all the coaches fail to turn for an act they lose their right to see them - leaving them forever wondering if they should have hit their buttons. With only ten spots to fill on each coach's team, the competition is fierce...

The coaches whittle down their teams at the Battle Rounds, getting to seize a rejected singer from one of their rivals in the process. The show then goes live for the Knock-Outs - and the public get to vote for their favourites.

Any spoilers on the contestants?

Acts on this week's show include female duo Capital B, made up of Zoe Hedge and Ebony Wilson, 29-year-old Chelsea Baldwin from Liverpool and 28-year-old Charlie Drew from Leicester.


Georgie Braggins, 21, from Hertford sings Everytime We Say Goodbye in her bid to make the battle roudns while teenager Jamie Miller performs Let It Go - the James Bay song, NOT the Frozen one...

Other hopefuls are 29-year-old Carter from Billingham in Teesside, the night's youngest auditionee, 18-year-old Shannon Kitchen, Bristol based Ben Fernihough and Michelle John from Bromley.

For now you can meet the contestants on The Voice UK here who have won a spot in the battle rounds.
