Blake can't wait to meet their new member following the departure of Jules Knight.

The classical vocal quartet are currently a man down after original member Jules quit to ficus on his acting career, and the rest of them are excited to see who will be joining them on their next adventure.

Member Stephen Bowman - who is currently joined in the group by Ollie Baines and Humphrey Berney - exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''We'll miss him but it'll be good to inject some new energy into the group, get some new life. So it's a very positive thing for all of us, to bring somebody new and exciting into the group. it's our busiest year yet. We'll be touring lots overseas, launching our fourth album in the UK, doing a lot for TV and radio. So from our point of view, having someone with us who's really going to enjoy that and see it through the eyes of a child is quite incredible. We're just looking forward to seeing who's joining us.''

Stephen says the group have been inundated with requests from people to join, which he isn't surprised about.

He said: ''As soon as the news that Jules was leaving was revealed, we just got loads and loads of requests from people, wanting to join. They all are desperate to be the fourth member! It's an incredible lifestyle and none of us take it for granted so I can see why lots of people would want to join.''
