When is The Voice UK series three on BBC1?

The third series of The Voice, featuring new signings Kylie Minogue, Ricky Wilson and Emma Willis, will begin airing on Saturday 11 January at 7pm on BBC1.

The Corporation is contracted to broadcast one more series of the show, which has never quite ignited the ratings as it would have liked.

Kylie and Kaiser Chiefs star Wilson have been hired as a new coaches and Big Brother presenter Emma Willis replaces host Holly Willoughby on the show. Other departees from the last series include Radio 1 DJ Reggie Yates, Jessie J and Script frontman Danny O’Donoghue.

The moves are thought to represent a “last throw of the dice” for the show.

Despite early success in the ratings for the first series, viewers soon fell away as the programme failed to compete against ITV’s Britain’s Got Talent with the average audience ratings dropping from 9.2m to 7.6m.

The Voice is on a rolling contract which is renewed each year.

Based on a Dutch format The Voice UK began in 2012 and cost the Corporation a reported £22m for the two series aired to date.
