For the first time new judges Kylie Minogue and Kaiser Chief's front man Ricky Wilson have taken their seats in the judge's spinning chairs for The Voice UK.
The judges began work on the blind auditions after enjoying a team bonding meal on Monday night at The Smoke Bar and the Malmaison hotel in Manchester.
"First day at school.....I mean, work! @BBCTheVoiceUK", tweeted the Australian popstar ahead of her first day. She also said she is looking forward to getting into the process: "Will I be competitive? Probably more than even I imagine! Watch this space!"
Although the judges are filming the blind auditions this week until Sunday, the auditions won't be aired until the third series of The Voice returns to BBC1 in Spring 2014.
