What time does The Voice UK 2018 start?

The Voice UK first started last week (Saturday, January 6) on ITV at 8pm.

Episode two of the show will air tonight (Saturday, January 13) in the same timeslot.

The show will continue with the blind auditions as the coaches put their teams together. 

ITV will be airing its second season of the show after buying it from the BBC.

The newly revamped judging line-up will be kicking off the show in style with a joint performance between the foursome.

They will then begin with the blind auditions as they put their teams together. 

WILL GAVIN ROSSDALE BE RETURNING TO THE VOICE UK?

Who are The Voice UK 2018 judges?

This year will see Sir Tom Jones, will.i.am and Jennifer Hudson returning to the panel.

Bush leader singer Gavin Rossdale has now left the show after one season after garnering a mixed response from viewers.

X Factor star Olly Murs is joining the panel this year as a judge and his addition was announced last year.

“I’m absolutely buzzing about being a coach on The Voice UK and can’t wait to sit in the big red chair alongside will, Jennifer and Tom,” Murs said after he was unveiled.

The Troublemaker singer added: “I’m excited to mentor new artists and without doubt, I’m in it to WIN!” 

Why is Gavin Rosssdale not coming back? 

Rossdale, 51, was axed from The Voice UK after just one season on the programme.

Following his departure from the show, he described the decision by the show’s producers as “showbiz”.

“It’s such a massive show and it’s great to be part of a juggernaut. I’m going to miss that side of it because that was a real laugh,” he told the Metro in August last year.

He added: “It was a great experience. I had an amazing time on the show I loved it, I love all the people on there. Especially Tom.”

The rockstar left many fans confused last year with audiences questioning on social media who the singer was and why he was on the judging panel. 

Rossdale later hit out at The Voice, saying that they were “chasing the tails” of The X Factor.

“What The X Factor does so well that they don’t is they are a bit more prepared between the label and the show,” he explained. 

Speaking to the Mirror, he continued: “They seem to test them with a few songs and have a lot more ready to go with the artist.” 

The Voice UK airs on Saturday January 6 on ITV at 8pm.
