ITV has announced that The Voice UK will return for its 11th series in 2022.

Anne-Marie, Olly Murs, Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am will also be back as singing coaches for the new talent that will appear on the programme, and presenter Emma Willis will once again preside over 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.

What did the Voice UK coaches had to say on the series returning?

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.”
