The Voice UK will return to our screens in the New Year, starting again on 10 January 2015.

Emma Willis and Marvin Humes are back and, they’ll be joining a brand new batch of singing hopefuls in their bid to win a recording contract after Christmas.

Taking to Twitter earlier today, the BBC confirmed the return date for the talent show via the official Voice UK Twitter page (@BBCTheVoiceUK).

Their tweet read: “Series 4 of #thevoiceuk will return to @BBCOne on… 10th of January at 7pm! Merry Xmas and Happy new Voice.

And, with the brand new series comes a brand new judge for the contestants to impress!

After Kylie Minogue decided to leave the show last series, Rita Ora has been drafted in to replace her, and the ‘Never Let You Down’ singer could not be more excited. She joins returning judges Tom Jones, Ricky Wilson and will.i.am.

Shortly after being announced as the fourth and final judge for 2015, Rita said: “Let’s have some fun will.i.am, Tom and Ricky!

I’m really looking forward to the blind auditions – and spinning in my big red chair. EXCITED!!!!
