The Voice UK has finally confirmed when the new series is set to kick off on ITV.

Sharing the news with fans on its official Twitter account, the 10th run of the singing contest will officially return on Saturday, January 2.

"Coaches, assemble," the tweet read, in keeping with the superhero-esque promo image of returning coaches Sir Tom Jones, Olly Murs and will.i.am, plus newbie Anne-Marie.

The 'Ciao Adios' singer is set to replace Meghan Trainor, who couldn't return due to her pregnancy.

"Awwww can't wait!!! @AnneMarie The only girl and the best ever," one excited fan replied, as another wrote: "Hurrah!! Love It!"

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live last month, Anne-Marie admitted: "I'm a bit nervous about it because I just feel like I'm not going to be able to say anything to hurt someone, I'm just going to put everyone through.

"I am going to be really honest but I'm going to be making sure they are alright, too... I mean, in this industry you do get mugged off quite a lot.

"I did say this to the crew, if I was to do it, I want to be majorly involved in the mental health side of things and be involved in the contestants, that whole part of it."

Emma Willis will also return to host the new series.
