Back in November last year, it was announced that The Voice will move to ITV as part of a three-year-deal that includes a spinoff show on ITV2 and a two-series contract for The Voice Kids.

The move ended speculation that ITV had bought The Voice from BBC, after it was claimed they had "poached" the series.

Since news about it's channel change surfaced, many have been guessing who will be fronting The Voice's lineup next year. While the celebrity coaches are still yet to be confirmed, reports have said Ricky Wilson could be returning, along with Rita Ora.

Rita was initially a coach on The Voice, before she left to become a judge on The X Factor. She starred on the judging panel with Simon Cowell, Cheryl and Nick Grimshaw, before choosing to quit after just one series.

Rita confirmed her exit in May. At the time of her exit, she tweeted boss Simon to say: "Can't wait to work with you again. I'll be round for dinner soon. Thank you for the experience & love."
