‘I'm very excited to become a coach on The Voice. I love the concept of the show and have been an avid viewer of both series,’ she added in a statement. ‘The search for new talent is such an important aspect of the music industry and The Voice gives us all a part to play in that.

Her ‘competition’ will be The Voice veterans Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones, and an as-yet unnamed fourth mentor, who will replace The Script’s Danny O'Donoghue.
