Rachel, who went on to have her own solo career, said: " I'm sure it will be great fun, but most of all I'm looking forward to listening to the great vocal talent that Ireland has to offer each week and to securing a team of people who have excited me enough to make me push that button for them.

"When I turn my chair, it will be for someone really special who gets under my skin and I truly believe has what it takes to make it to the final."

Una has had her own experience on the other side of TV talent shows, having auditioned for the series Popstars before forming The Saturdays.

She said: "I'm delighted to be a part of the fantastic team behind The Voice of Ireland, I love the show and I can't wait to sit in that chair. I know the talent that Ireland has to offer so that button is going to see a lot of action."
