The Voice returns to our screens in January, but we've got a first look at the new line-up of judges - which now features chart superstar Rita Ora.

The foursome - which also includes Kaiser Chiefs Ricky Wilson, will.i.am, and Sir Tom Jones - pose together in this new set of promo shots, with Rita wearing her trademark quirky style in a blue feather dress.

L-R: Ricky Wilson, Sir Tom Jones, Rita Ora, and will.i.am

Sir Tom opened up about Rita joining the panel at last week's BBC Music Awards, revealing: "Rita is great, she's fresh and she's what's happening now."

"She fills that seat very well, because I think that's the hardest seat when a lady has to fill that, because there's three fellas there and one girl. So that's a big chair for her to fill, and she's filling it really great, she's in there", Sir Tom added.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the crooner, whose career has spanned decades, continued: "Her personality is coming across. Jessie J's personality came across, Kylie Minogue's personality and now Rita's coming across, so it's different because they're three different people."

Earlier in September, when Rita was first announced as the new judge, will.i.am, known for taking his time in pushing the red button and turning his chair on the BBC show, admitted how excited he was for Rita to join the show, which is going into its fourth season: "Rita is sweet, spicy and sassy – she's going to be a great addition to the Coaches team."
