MEL C REPLACES PALOMA FAITH AS COACH ON THE VOICE KIDS

Spice Girls star Melanie C will join The Voice Kids this Summer for the fifth series of ITV's singing contest.



Airing during the festive period, this year’s series of The Voice Kids is a Christmas television event not to be missed. An array of singers, aged seven to 14, will take to the stage in a bid to impress the star coaching panel and get those big red chairs turning.


Mel said: “I’ve always been a huge fan of The Voice so I am super excited to be a coach on The Voice Kids this year. I can’t wait to get in one of those big red chairs and Spice things up.”


Danny Jones said: “I’m chuffed to have Melanie joining the gang. Every year when I think the talent can’t be topped I find myself blown away by the new up and coming kids. I’m looking forward to discovering some brand new little superstars, it’s also a mission of mine to catch up with Pixie’s winning streak.”


Will said: "A big welcome to Melanie C this year, also known as Sporty Spice. What do you think of the nickname Coach Spice?"


Pixie Lott said: “I am the biggest Spice Girls fan. They were the first concert I ever went to, so it’s such a thrill to have Melanie joining the show too, upping the level of girl power even more.”


The Voice Kids will return to ITV later this year.
