The Voice returns for new series in trailer from ITV
Emma Willis has revealed that her judge co-stars on The Voice UK often realise too late that they made a mistake when it comes to picking singers to make it through to the next round of the competition.
“As soon as the coaches haven’t turned for somebody, they say ‘this is the one we are going to watch back and be like we made a big mistake there’,” she admitted.
“But there are so many brilliant singers, it must be so hard to pick.”
Pop princess Anne-Marie, X Factor’s Olly Murs, music legend Sir Tom Jones and Black Eyed Peas icon Will.i.am are all tasked with finding the next singing sensation on the popular Saturday night ITV show.

Speaking of the change to the format Emma said: “It’s always nice to add something you’ve never done before.
“There are loads of groups out there who’ve never had the chance to come and audition and now they can.
“We’ve had some great groups but for me, there was an absolute corker of a group, they had the whole package – it was like watching Little Mix.”
The show is also about to undergo another big change at the end of this series as Olly Murs is leaving the programme.
He recently revealed that the upcoming series would be his last and admitted to being “sad” about leaving after seven years.

“I feel so proud of this show. When I started I never imagined I would be here for 6 or 7 years,” he said.
“I’m sad to be leaving but so happy to have been a part of the show. I’m hoping this series will be the best one yet!”
Olly also touched on who he thought was the most competitive out of himself and his fellow co-stars and admitted: “I’ll say I want to win.
“Yet actually underneath it all they’re just as competitive as me, they just don’t want to show it. They all want to win!
“They’re more tactical than me, but it means a lot to me because that was once me. When I watch the contestants I know what that feeling is like,” he said.
“I’m someone that came from a show too so this is my environment and it’s where it started for me.
The other judges are right, I take it more to heart and personally because that was once me.
“I really want them to win, but it’s not about me, if I’m the coach that gave them that chance then great.”
The ultimate series winner will secure a recording contract with Universal Records as well as win a massive £50k cash prize and a luxury holiday.
The Voice UK returns on Saturday 4th November at 8.25pm on ITV1, ITVX and STV.
