Anne-Marie has been announced as Meghan Trainor’s replacement on The Voice UK.
Last week, Meghan told fans she’s expecting a baby with her husband Daryl Sabara – before announcing her decision to quit her role as a Coach on the singing competition show.
Now, singer Anne-Marie will be joining Tom Jones, Olly Murs and Will.i.am on the upcoming season of the talent show.
Sharing the news on the official Instagram account for the show, The Voice UK wrote: “NEW COACH KLAXON! 🎀 @AnneMarie is joining #TheVoiceUK party for 2021 🎉”
The 2002 singer said of the news: “I am SO excited to join Sir Tom, Will.i.am and Olly as the new coach on The Voice UK. I can’t wait to work with incredible undiscovered talent! Wahoooooo!”
Tom Jones said of the show’s new addition: “I am really looking forward to working with Anne-Marie for the upcoming series of The Voice UK.
“Anne-Marie will bring an injection of fresh energy and ideas which is fantastic. I’m excited and anticipating a fun and challenging new Series 10!”
Will.i.am added: “I’m really excited about this new season and welcoming Anne-Marie as our newest coach on The Voice UK.
“With her songwriting, singing and performance skills, plus her tell-it-like-it-is approach, this makes her the perfect mix-it-up addition to this season.”
Olly Murs, who worked with Anne-Marie when she guest mentored on the show last year, added: “The advice and help she gave to my contestants that day was invaluable. I’m a huge champion of her.
“I can’t wait to hear about her own journey and I’m sure she will be a fantastic coach. She is one of the biggest female artists in the industry right now, so it’s great to have her join the team and also help bring the Essex ratio up! We are taking over!”
