Speaking about his new role, Jones said: "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."

The Welsh crooner continued: "I’ve been blessed over the years to share the stage with some of the worlds finest artists, and I look forward to being part of the team that discovers a great, new, genuine talent."

The Script's Danny stated: "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."

Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates will host The Voice - which is based on the popular US series, where Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine make up the judging panel.

The Voice is expected to rival The X Factor next year, when it starts next spring.
