After spending much of their time in Salford during the filming of the Blind Auditions last year, the Voice UK judges have decided to pay a visit to Weatherfield, the home of Coronation Street. The stars of the show - Jennifer Hudson, Gavin Rossdale, Sir Tom Jones and will.i.am - were recently given a special tour of the set where they were introduced to Corrie favourite Beverley Callard.
New coach Jennifer, 35, stood out in a magenta velvet dress, which highlighted her toned hourglass curves perfectly, while she rounded off the proceedings with gold hoop earrings, a bold plum lip shade and heavily-defined eyes. Speaking about meeting the American award-winning star, Beverley shared: "Jennifer was so glam and gorgeous, Liz would love to have her work behind the bar.

"Gavin told me he grew up in a pub so he was a natural when it came to how everything worked. And can you imagine Karaoke nights in the Rovers if these guys worked for Liz!"
The actress, who plays the Rovers Return Inn pub landlady Liz McDonald in the soap, confessed she was particularly pleased to meet singing legend Tom. "It was such an honour showing the coaches round the Rovers, my late mum was the biggest Tom Jones fan of all time and my Grandchildren are huge fans of Will," she said.

"My mum would have been so thrilled to know he was behind the bar with me and I was a very cool grandma when I took home my photos of me showing Will how to pull a pint. Will even said he'd like to film a pop video in our pub!"
The judges are currently on their quest to uncover the best vocal talent that Britain has to offer. This year's winner will be given a life-changing record contract with Polydor Records. The Voice UK returns to ITV on Saturday at 8pm.
