Tom Jones and The Script's Danny O'Donoghue join The Voice UK as coaches

Legendary performer Tom Jones and The Script's frontman Danny O'Donoghue are the last two coaches to be confirmed for The Voice UK. 

Will.i.Am and vocal powerhouse Jessie J were the first mentors to be announced, but they will now be joined by the 'Sex Bomb' singer and 'The Man Who Can't Be Moved' Irish rocker. 

Speaking about joining the brand new talent search, Jones told the press: "I'm excited about The Voice, and thrilled to be participating as a coach. This is a strong show; it's all about talent - but it's also exciting, competitive and compelling television."

"I've been blessed over the years to share the stage with some of the world's finest artists, and I look forward to being part of the team that discovers a great, new, genuine talent."

Meanwhile, O'Donoghue added: "I'm a massive fan of The Voice, so to be involved as a coach is amazing. This is a show unlike any other because it puts vocal ability first above all else. I look forward to putting my team together and battling it out with the other coaches to see who wins this unique, credible competition. I'm in it to win it!"
