Confirmed: will.i.am will return to The Voice as a celebrity coach when it airs on ITV for the first time next year.

Back in November last year, it was revealed that The Voice will switch over to ITV as of 2017 and since then, fans have been speculating which celebrities will be joining the lineup as the show's coaches.

Now, ITV has revealed its first celebrity coach and viewers will see will.i.am return to those spinning red chairs next time round.

Will has been a coach on the show since its original air date in 2012 and so has plenty of experience when it comes to searching for the UK's latest vocal talent.

Speaking about his return to The Voice, the Black Eyed Peas star has said: "I'm delighted to be continuing The Voice UK on ITV and being a voice of direction and guidance for the usual suspects, and I'm thrilled to add The Voice Kids to the mix…I know The Voice switched to ITV, but I'm not going to BREXIT The Voice UK. I'm happy to make ITV my home now. I love the UK."

He's not the only familiar face to return, as Emma Willis will be back on hosting duties and continue to present the show. She told fans she is "absolutely delighted" to be returning to The Voice.

Marvin Humes, meanwhile, won't be joining her. He had co-hosted alongside Emma, but confirmed his exit shortly after she was announced for the ITV series

Marvin told Digital Spy: "I've loved every minute of working on The Voice for the past 3 series and will miss working with Emma and the team. It's one of the best shows on TV and I'll definitely be tuning in to see the new series."

Will and Emma will also return for The Voice Kids.
