The Voice UK ITV, 7.30pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

The BBC’s flag­ship singing con­test re­turns, with Paloma Faith and Boy Ge­orge fill the two spin­ning chairs left va­cant fol­low­ing Tom Jones’ de­par­ture, and Rita Ora's de­fec­tion to The X Fac­tor last year. Will.i.am and Ricky Wil­son re­turn to take their place on the panel, along with pre­sen­ters Emma Wil­lis and Marvin Humes. The con­test gets un­der way with the first of seven tra­di­tional ‘blind au­di­tions’ stages, in which the four coaches must se­lect their teams by as­sess­ing their vo­cal abil­ity alone. Among the au­di­tion­ees are a punk fan whose twist on a pop clas­sic melts hearts on the panel.
