It's set to be the biggest prime time TV battle in quite a while.

This Saturday night, ITV's newly-acquired show The Voice will go up against the BBC's Let It Shine: both of them filmed at Media City in Salford.

Those behind The Voice have good reason to be confident, thanks to the return of Sir Tom Jones.

They'll be looking for top talent among the contestants, with a fair few from the North West. Lauren Hall reports:



Meet Judge Rinder - coming to TV screens soon

ITV's new programme Judge Rinder will see real life cases adjudicated over in a studio courtroom recorded right here in our ITV studios in Media City.

It's a similar format to America's popular Judge Judy TV show.

High flying criminal defence barrister, Manchester University graduate Robert Rinder, will be the star of the show and he's been into the Granada Reports studio to speak to Lucy..

ITV - Corrie attraction will be for a "limited period"

The long-term future of the Corrie set has not been determined.

ITV has sold the former Granada Studios site on Quay Street to developers Allied London.

After the production has moved to its new home, and subject to planning permission, we are looking into the possibility of opening the current Coronation Street set at our Quay Street site as a tourist attraction for a limited period, giving fans the opportunity to walk down the famous cobbles."
