Newly-engaged Pixie Lott and McFly singer Danny Jones have been confirmed as judges on The Voice Kids.

Rumours about the line-up for the ITV programme have been circulating for months, with countless names tipped to join will.i.am on the panel of the new show.

But now it has been announced that Pixie and Danny will complete the trio of experts searching for Britain's brightest young star.

"I can't wait to join The Voice Kids and help discover the next big star," Pixie said in a statement. "I have such a passion for talented young people and I know the UK will have lots – I can't wait to hear them!

"I'm looking forward to getting started and working alongside my fellow coaches will.i.am and Danny Jones."

Meanwhile, boy band member Danny is equally excited about his new job, which will start when the audition stage of the programme starts shooting next month (Dec16).

"I'm pumped about joining The Voice Kids team," Danny said. "There are so many talented kids out there, they just need to be heard and this is a great platform for them.

"I'm looking forward to finding some fresh talent and coaching them. You never know, there might be a mini McFly out there!"

Black Eyed Peas star will.i.am, who is also a judge on the main The Voice show alongside Gavin Rossdale, Tom Jones and Jennifer Hudson, added he is thrilled with his new co-judges on the kids spin off.

"Doing The Voice Kids with Pixie and Danny is going to be dope and I'm really excited to discover just how talented British kids can be," he said.

The Voice Kids aims to find the hottest young talent in the U.K., with children aged between seven and 14 auditioning for a spot on the programme.
