AS The Voice of Ireland enters the live stages, the coaches on the UK version were all smiles as they reunited for the show's second series.

Jessie J, Tom Jones, The Script's Danny O'Donoghue and Will.i.am are all back as rivals for the talent show, which is due to start in spring.

Dubliner Danny  gave a victory sign as the stars promoted the series in a London hotel, showing he intends to find a winning act in the show.

BBC bosses have brought back the talent show with new twists after ratings dropped during the first series following the end of the "swivel chair" rounds.

The first UK series was won by Leanne Mitchell, who had been coached by Tom Jones.
