The Voice UK is officially back! Filming for the third series of the singing competition kicked off this week and this year sees a complete revamp.

Aussie pop princess Kylie Minogue and Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson have joined original coaches Tom Jones and for the new series.

Now, the first photo of all judges sitting in the famous red spinning chairs has been unveiled. The official Voice Twitter account said: "#TheVoiceUK's new awesome foursome, @Rickontour, @RealSirTomJones, @kylieminogue and @iamwill in their chairs..."

This is the first glimpse of the new-look panel and judging by the photo, they all look to be getting along just fine! Kylie is wedged between Will and Tom, while Ricky is placed on the end next to Tom.

We think newbies Kylie and Ricky will have no problem adjusting to their new roles, and when Ricky confirmed the news last month, he said: "Who doesn't want to spend their Saturday night with Kylie Minogue?"

The judges are now on day two of filming, after the blind auditions kicked off on Tuesday (1 October).

Kylie and Ricky have replaced coaches Jessie J and Danny O'Donaghue, who both bowed out after filming two years of the show. Emma Willis and Marvin Humes are also new additions to the team, as they will now co-present the primetime show, taking over from Reggie Yates and Holly Willoughby.

The Voice UK returns on BBC One in January.
