Furthermore, presenter Emma Willis returns as host, and will once again preside over all of the action.

Singer Anne-Maries, who made her debut as coach earlier this year, said: “It feels so good to be back!

“I had the most amazing time last series, and I am so excited to be returning to my big red chair.

Olly’s recovery

It’s particularly good news that Olly is returning as coach.

In August (2021) he was rushed to hospital after suffering a knee injury on-stage during a live performance.

The 37-year-old star then underwent critical knee surgery to repair the damage.
