Expect plenty of the ‘aww’ factor as it’s the kids’ turn to get judges - Danny Jones, Pixie Lott and will.i.am to spin chairs their big red chairs!

The little people are back to show the adults how it’s done as The Voice Kids returns.

This time, all the action from the blind auditions, battle rounds and semi-final will be crammed into one week!

Every night, the pint-sized performers will attempt to impress the returning coaches, McFly’s Danny Jones, singer Pixie Lott and music producer and Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am.

Keep your eyes peeled for seven-year-old Bristolian cowboy Shaney-Lee (above) and 13-year-old Lucia, whose dad might be familiar to Coronation Street fans.

We ask the judges how does it feel having the series shown in one week?

'It makes it more like a TV special. I like that!' says will.i.am.

'You don’t lose the energy and consistency, and you really get to know the singers,' adds Danny.

While Pixie says: 'The focus is on this one week and it’s like bang, bang, bang! It makes it more exciting.

'The standard is so good. We had some eight- and nine-year-olds on the last series but this year we’ve seen seven-year-olds,' she says. 'They’re the youngest contestants we’ve had.'

Will they be able to do enough to make the coaches turn those bright red chairs around?
