By
BBC One controller Danny Cohen has hinted that The Voice UK will likely keep the same coaches for its second series.

"We thought they made a very big impact for a first series and we want them all to come back," said the channel head.

"We haven't signed any contracts yet, so I can't say anything official. But we said at the end of the first series that we wanted all of our coaches to come back."

Cohen also defended the show's ratings performance - calling The Voice UK a "big hit" - but admitted that the singing contest had experienced "a few problems" during live performances.

He added that a second series would definitely incorporate format changes, including "probably less live shows"

Jessie J recently confirmed that she will return to The Voice UK via her Twitter account.
