Ricky Wilson and Kylie Minogue will join Sir Tom Jones and Will.i.am on the BBC's returning singing contest
The Voice is back, and with an almost entirely new line-up too, as the BBC's returning singing contest hopes to come back with a bang and establish itself as a favourite with the British viewing public. Having suffered in the ratings in the last season, BBC bosses are hoping that the shake-up on the show will reinvigorate it's formula and turn the show into the country's top-rated reality contest.
Kylie Minogue and Ricky Wilson join the judge's panel, taking up the spots vacated by the departing Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue, and previous hosts Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates have been replaced too, with Emma Willis and former JLS star Marvin Humes fronting the show this time around. The question is, will this shake up be enough to see the show surpass The X Factor as the nation's favourite singing contest? And can the show actually produce any stars this time?

BBC's talent show, 'The Voice UK' is continuing its rebuilding process after key high profile departures by hiring JLS's Marvin Humes.
Humes is set to replace Reggie Yates who left the show earlier this week along with his co-host Holly Willoughby, whose replacement has been announced as 'Big Brother' presenter Emma Willis.
The 28 year old will be elated that he landed this role, as he will soon have a lot of spare time on his hands because his band 'JLS' announced earlier this year that they are splitting up in the near future following a final farewell tour.

It's back to square one for The Voice.
It was like something out of Game of Thrones; suddenly, everyone was gone. But while The Voice has lost many of its key players, the latest: Reggie Yates and Holly Willoughby, The BBC have already started rebuilding from the bottom up, with Marvin Humes coming in as host alongside Emma Willis.
“Marvin’s nervous but excited,’ a source explained to The Sun. “He’s got a few months to brush up on his presenting skills before the live shows, but he’ll go straight into the recorded rounds very soon. Bosses reckon he and Emma will have great chemistry.”
Early suggestions were that Willis’ husband, Matt, would be the one to replace Yates, forming a husband and wife partnership for the show, but alas, that never materialised.

The JLS guys are eager to move on to the next stage of their lives.
Nostalgia abounds as the news that one of the X Factor’s first prodigal acts – the boyband JLS – is no longer together. The lads first came into prominence after finishing second to Alexandra Burke on 2008’s X Factor competition. At the time, producer Simon Cowell refused to sign the boyband – what a mistake that was. After they signed with Epic Records instead, JLS went on to win two BRIT awards, fill 1.5MILLION seats on tour, sell more than 10MILLION records and have FIVE No1 singles – more than any other reality show competition, according to The Sun.
While we haven’t been hearing much from the band these days, back i their hayday they drove their fans almost to hysteria – with fans frequently injured in the crowd’s excitement at their shows. But now that the five-year recording contract is up, JLS are setting their sights on other goals:
“I’ve got a baby on the way in four weeks, so it’s another celebration for me. But that was also another sign that we were moving on to the next stage in our lives,” said JLS’s Marvin, 28, who is married to Saturdays singer Rochelle. “The last five or so years have been nothing short of incredible. It has been an incredible journey,” he also explained.

JLS star launches new show tonight on Capital FM
JLS star Marvin Humes makes his debut on Capital FM as a radio presenter tonight and his new wife The Saturday’s singer Rochelle could barely contain her excitement on the matter. But what does this mean for JLS, if ol’ Marv’s time is going to be taken up in the London radio studio? In February, the band mentioned that they were working on a follow-up to Evolution, already, so hopefully, Marvin’s simply branching out and planning on doing a bit of multi-tasking.
According to Rochelle’s excitable tweet, Marvin’s appearance tonight will be an introduction to a regular Friday night slot, so listeners can have their weekends brought in by none other than the boy band hunk. “So excited for my hubby. Joining the Capital fm team. His first show tonight. Then he will be bringing on the weekend every Friday #boom x” tweeted Rochelle, happy to be revelling in her hubby’s new job.

Marvin Humes from JLS and his wife Rochelle Humes from The Saturdays arrive in their car at the Westbury hotel in London. There is some time before Rochelle manages to get out of the car, as she is currently heavily pregnant.
Marvin Humes, of JLS fame, has revealed that there's one thing he desires more than anything in the world, and this is to have as big a family as possible.
Humes, who recently announced he was expecting his first child with The Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes, told The Mirror that he hopes that his first child will not be his last and the prospect of being a father has made him the happiest he's ever been. We just hope, for his sake, that Rochelle shares his enthusiasm for having as big a brood as possible.
He told the newspaper: "I'm a family man so I'd like as many kids as possible. We always said that four would be fantastic. But one at a time, know what I mean?" He also added, "Everyone asks if you want a boy or girl but the most important thing is that the baby is healthy."
