Sir Tom said: "I'm excited about The Voice, and thrilled to be participating as a coach. This is a strong show; it's all about talent - but it's also exciting, competitive and compelling television.

"I've been blessed over the years to share the stage with some of the worlds finest artists, and I look forward to being part of the team that discovers a great, new, genuine talent."

He joins The Script frontman Danny O'Donoghue, singer Jessie J and Black Eyed Peas' will.i.am.

BBC One Controller Danny Cohen said: "I'm delighted to be announcing Tom Jones... Tom is a music legend and will bring huge experience and creativity to the line-up. Danny is a rising star who will bring freshness and surprise to the team. Overall, our line-up of Tom Jones, Jessie J, will.i.am and Danny O'Donoghue gives us mega-star quality, great musical range and musicians we know our audience love."

The show, which started life as a hit in the Netherlands, then crossed to America with huge success, will be presented by Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates.
