The Voice UK: Which coaches will be back next year?

The Voice UK 2017 judges

The Voice UK has wrapped up for its first year on ITV - but which of the coaches will be back next year?

This evening saw the live final of The Voice 2017 as Mo Adeniran was crowned the winner.

The Team Jennifer singer beat out all the competition from the past twelve weeks to sign a record deal with Polydor records.

But will Jennifer be back next year? And what about Gavin Rossdale, Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones?

Well Gavin - who didn't have any acts going into the final - has admitted he's not (yet) been asked to return: “I think they’re waiting until the end of the series. They’re waiting for us to clear every hurdle. If they don’t ask me back then a bit like when my acts went out, I would wonder what I did wrong. But I’ve had a great time doing it – it’s been incredible for me."

However, Sir Tom says he already is in talks.

He told the Daily Star on Sunday: We’re talking about it now. It looks pretty positive. I hate to count my chickens before they hatch because I’ve been in this business for a long time.

“But they know I like the show. It’s all pretty positive. The deadline for a decision is the summertime.”

As for Jennifer, she revealed: “I’ve already said I will come back. I don’t see why I wouldn’t.

“I would love to do next year. I will make time for it because I’ve enjoyed this year. I’ve had a great time.”

And when it comes to Will.i.am, he declared to the Radio Times: "I would do that... if Tom does it.”

The Voice UK will return in 2018 on ITV with auditions already open for the next series at itv.com/thevoice
