All four coaches from The Voice are to be reunited when the
series returns to BBC1 next year.
Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am, Jessie J and The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue have signed up for the show when it comes back next spring.
Price Tag singer Jessie J has agreed to judge a further series despite announcing in her recent autobiography Nice To Meet You that she would not return.
She had already changed her mind by the time the book was published in the summer.
All four judges are understood to be receiving the same fee they were paid for the first series.
The show pulled in strong audiences during its early stages for the first series, particularly when the coaches were choosing contenders, listening with their backs turned and then spinning in their seats to see who they had chosen.
The show’s ratings fell as the series went on, but it is still said to be BBC1’s biggest new entertainment show with an average 9.2 million viewers across the series, including viewers on catch-up.
The last series was won by Leanne Mitchell, who had been coached by Sir Tom Jones. She won a recording deal with music giant Universal.
