Mark Linsey, Controller Entertainment Commissioning, said: “I am so thrilled that our four coaches are coming back for series two. All of them are hugely talented individuals and their immense knowledge and first-hand experience in the music industry makes it a line-up that is authentic and second to none. They care passionately about singing and all four of them will want to be the coach that discovers the next winner of The Voice.”

Moira Ross, Head of Entertainment at Wall to Wall, said: “I’m delighted that our four fabulous coaches are back for series two of The Voice. The dynamic between them is fantastic – the banter, the jockeying for position and the friendly rivalry amongst them, but most of all the respect they have for each other and the singers. All the ingredients for a great second series.”

Sir Tom Jones said: “I’m really looking forward to seeing and working with Jessie, Will and Danny on the second series of The Voice. I’ve heard there will be some important changes that will make what is already a good, strong show even better.”

will.i.am said: “This season is gonna be doper than last year!!”

Danny O’Donoghue said: “I can’t wait to start the search again for the hottest vocal talent in the UK. I had an amazing experience last time and from what i believe, this year’s gonna be bigger and better, already the level of singers auditioning has gone through the roof and I can’t wait for the rest of the UK to hear and enjoy all the undiscovered artists there are out there… Tom, Will, and Jessie… Bring it on guys!!”
