BBC boss Danny Cohen recently confirmed that the show's second run would have "less live shows" and "more blind auditions and battle rounds".

The first series of the talent show was the BBC's biggest new entertainment series on record, averaging 9.2million. In the early audition shows, it overtook Simon Cowell's Britain's Got Talent in the ratings, before figures began to slide in the latter rounds.
