HUGE NEWS ALERT: Meghan Trainor is joining our superstar coaching panel on the new series of The Voice UK.
As well as being a multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY® Award-winning singer-songwriter, Meghan has also appeared as a judge on FOX’s singing contest THE FOUR: Battle for Stardom alongside Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and DJ Khaled.
Now, as she prepares to join The Voice UK Meghan says: “I am so excited and honoured to join Sir Tom, will.i.am and Olly Murs as the new Coach on The Voice UK! It’s a dream come true and I can’t wait to sit in the chair with my own button and listen to some incredible new talent!”
Meghan will take her place as a new Coach alongside Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Olly Murs when filming commences this October, with the series set to launch on ITV in the New Year. Sir Tom, will.i.am and Olly all return to their big red chairs following a summer spent entertaining audiences around the world on their respective tours.
Welcome to the family, Meghan!
Jennifer Hudson has confirmed that she will be standing down from her role on The Voice UK as she prepares for the December release of the hotly anticipated film adaptation of Cats and commences filming the Aretha Franklin biopic, Respect.
JHud revealed the news on Twitter, saying, "Hey y’all! I’m sad to share that I won’t be able to join my friends in the red chair for @thevoiceuk this season due to filming commitments here in the States. I sure will miss my UK family, but I’ll be back soon for ‘Cats’ and ‘Respect’! Throw some shoes for me in the mean time."
Name: Cedric Neal
He lives in a windmill, has incredible fashion sense, and is a seasoned West End performer. There’s quite literally nothing Cedric Neal can’t do, and he continues to prove it, week in week out on The Voice UK.
It's time for Olly Murs to face Quick Fire Questions, where we put forward some very important life decisions to choose between. You know, like best friend Robbie Williams, or fellow Coach, will.i.am.....
Over the next few weeks we'll be challenging all of our Coaches to this test, so be sure to check back to see how Sir Tom, Will and Jennifer get on!
