The Voice UK is back for its eleventh series set to air this September on ITV

In the search for the next singing sensation Anne-Marie, Olly Murs, Sir Tom Jones and have once again assumed their roles as the superstar Coaches and returned to their seats in the most iconic chairs on television.

Much-loved television presenter Emma Willis also returns as host and will once again preside over all of the action.

Hopefuls looking for a shot at stardom will take to the stage in a bid to be crowned this series' winner, securing a recording contract with Universal's label UMOD.

This series will also see a fresh new addition to the format - The Callbacks - where hopeful contestants that made it through the Blind Auditions will battle it out to earn their place in the Semi-Final.

Anne-Marie said: "It feels so good to be back! I had the most amazing time last series, and I am so excited to be returning to my big red chair. Winning with Craig last series was a special moment and I am determined to keep a hold of my crown!"

Olly Murs said: "I cannot wait to be reunited with The Voice UK family! We always have so much fun making the show and I'm sure this series will be no exception. Anne-Marie needs to watch out because this series I'm taking back the title!"

Sir Tom Jones said: "Whenever I'm back in The Voice UK studio, my expectations are exceeded. I love the anticipation of hearing unknown singers and I can't wait to see what's in store this time around!" said: "I'm excited to be returning to the UK, my second home, as we start filming the next series of The Voice UK. Discovering fresh and unique voices is what this show is all about, so I am looking forward to meeting Britain's next wave of talent."

In episode 1 the coaches undertake the very first round of the blind auditions and things quickly turn competitive as Olly reminds the other coaches of the power of the block button as he says: "we actually have got the block buttons back again so that's going to be fun, which means if I like a contestant and I don't want any of these coaches to have one of them, I've only got one pick."

Not long after, Olly can't resist blocking Tom as they are both blown away by a spellbinding performance from 20 year old Student David from London.

We also meet couple Emily and Tom who met whilst studying music at university, before taking to the stage Emily admits, "I fell in love with Tom for his voice". The couple's chemistry comes through in their performance as all four coaches turn around but Tom decides to give Olly some payback pressing the block button on his way around but which coach will Emily and Tom choose?

The return of the live audience keeps our coaches on their toes as they all chant and cheer in the hope that Tom will sing for them, happy to oblige before singing his track ‘Crumble’ he says: "this is a very important song, I try to pick songs that mean a lot to me." There isn't a dry eye in the house when Tom finishes his performance before opening up about the meaning of the song.

The Voice UK is filmed at dock10 studios and is produced by Lifted Entertainment, part of ITV Studios. The Voice is an ITV Studios format.
