ITV singing competition The Voice will soon be back on our screens for its 11th season, with judges Tom Jones,, Olly Murs and Anne-Marie reprising their position in those red chairs.


Last year's final saw new coach Anne-Marie emerge victorious with singer Craig Eddie.

Each singer performed twice - singing on their own and in a duet with their coach, after which came a vote to decide who would go into the final two. Grace and Craig went head-to-head, before it was announced that Craig had received the most votes from the public, and was crowned the 2021 winner of The Voice UK.

It's not yet known what ITV have planned for the new season.

Last year, they introduced the 'block' button, which allowed each coach to stop one of their fellow mentors from adding a particular singer to their team.

However, all four coaches could only use this tool once.

Speaking of the new feature, Olly Murs previously revealed The Voice UK's block button had made the coaches more competitive, saying: "It’s a great feature this year and I really think this is the start of something new with the show. "

He added: "I think there’ll be other features along the way that might happen at some point, but I just think it gives a whole new element – like who is Sir Tom going to block? Who’s Will gonna block? Who’s Olly gonna block? If anything, it’s all about who I block really. You’ll see why when you watch the show.”

Other than the block button, the 2021 season followed the usual format, starting off with the blind auditions, where the contestants sing to the backs of the coaches who then press their button to swivel around if they like the act, or stay as they are if not.

Next, was The Voice UK battle rounds where the judges chopped their teams down even further.

Usually, the knockout stage would follow, with artists performing a ‘killer song’ of their choosing and the coaches picking three members from their team to go through to the semi-finals.

However, in 2021 the show decided to go without this stage, and had two semi-final shows instead, before one act was chosen by each coach to represent them in the final.

The Voice UK will return to ITV on Saturday 3rd September at 8pm. Looking for something else to watch? Check out our TV Guide or visit our dedicated Entertainment hub for the latest news.
