    Kylie Minogue has confirmed she’s joining series three of The Voice, where she’ll be filling Jessie J’s coveted judge’s slot.

    The superstar will sit on the panel of the BBC hit show alongside and Tom Jones when the series returns later this year. How exciting?!

    In a statement, the singer said: ‘I’m very excited. I love the concept of the show and have been an avid viewer of both series. Will I be competitive? Probably more than even I imagine! Watch this space!’

    Kylie is no stranger to TV talent shows – she’s joined her sister Dannii Minogue as a mentor on The X Factor UK in the past, and has assisted on the Australian version of the series. Danny O’Donoghue’s slot still needs to be filled.

    Moira Ross from The Voice UK’s production company, Wall To Wall, said: ‘In terms of pop royalty, it really doesn’t get much better than Kylie. With more than two decades of global success under her belt, I know she’ll bring something truly special to the coaching line-up.’
