The Voice UK is now approaching the end of its third series and its current coaching line-up comprises Kylie Minogue, Ricky Wilson, Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am. Jones and will.i.am have been with the show since it began in 2012, while Minogue and Wilson joined for series three, replacing previous coaches Jessie J and The Script frontman Danny O'Donoghue. Announcing the two new series of The Voice, BBC One Controller Charlotte Moore said in a statement: "It's been fantastic to see The Voice return in top form to kick start BBC One’s brilliant year so far - the new line-up has really connected with audiences and I look forward to it returning to the channel next year." The Voice has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity this series, attracting an average weekly audience of nearly nine million viewers each Saturday night on BBC One. The BBC have yet to announce who will return to the coaching panel for series four, though Kylie cast doubts over her return to the show last week (March 22), saying: "I’m touring later this year and the timings wouldn’t work." The Voice continues tonight (March 29) on BBC One at 7pm - with the final following a week later on April 5. > Watch Kylie’s suggestive new video for ‘Sexercize’ > Kylie announces UK and Ireland tour dates for Autumn
