First look at Kylie Minogue and Ricky Wilson in the new Voice UK line-up

The pair have joined and Tom Jones as coaches for the start of series three following the departures of Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue


It’s fair to say Kylie Minogue’s more than a little excited by her new gig on The Voice. Monday was her first outing as Jessie J’s replacement, as she revealed via Twitter. Today she can be seen grinning from ear to ear in the first image released of the panel sitting in their famous spinning chairs. 


Minogue is joined by fellow newcomer Ricky Wilson after The Kaiser Chiefs’ frontman replaced outgoing judge Danny O’Donoghue earlier this month. Completing this year’s panel are old hands Tom Jones and who are returning to the singing contest for a third series.

The new line-up posed for the cameras in The Voice UK’s studio up in Salford as the team launched the latest search for a British chart-topper after previous winners Leanne Mitchell and Andrea Begley generated a mediocre reception from the public… 

Series three of The Voice is set to air on BBC1 next January with Emma Willis and Marvin Humes taking over presenting duties from Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates.
