Start Date For The Voice UK Revealed?

Not long to go now!

The BBC appear to have revealed the start date for the first season of The Voice.

The singing contest, which prides itself on putting vocal ability ahead of star quality, will allegedly kick off on BBC One on Saturday March 24.

The date appeared in a press release intended to reveal details on the show's social media strategy, and the BBC have maintained that an official confirmation is still pending.

The show became the most-watched non-sporting broadcast in six years in the US, when its second season premiere was aired directly after the Super Bowl.

Jessie J, Danny O'Donaghue, will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones serve as coaches on the UK counterpart, with Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates to host.

BBC One controller Danny Cohen was reported to have spent £20 million on the rights to the show in a bid to out-do ITV's ratings winners Britain's Got Talent and The X Factor.
