'The Voice' coaches arrive for the second series



Audience numbers for series two of The Voice UK have steadily risen each week - the show returned with an overnight audience of 6.2m on March 30, but the April 20 edition hit a series high of 7.92m.

It is yet to be confirmed if the four coaches - Tom Jones, will.i.am, Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue - will return for the third series.

Danny Cohen - then BBC One controller - defended picking up The Voice format prior to the show's launch in 2011.

"We feel that there's enough difference in this format that it will stand out," said Cohen. "We've got three dancing shows on BBC One... on Saturday nights, and I wanted to decrease that, but still find ways that we could have live, often performance-based television.

"We are in an era where the audience love that [and] we shouldn't ignore what the audience want."
