The second series of 'The Voice' is just around the corner, and despite mixed success during its first year on air, the judges were all smiles as they lined up at the official press launch on Monday.

Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones, Danny O'Donoghue and Will.i.am reunited at the Soho Hotel in London to celebrate being back in their famous spinning chairs.

Last year's winning coach Sir Tom smiled for the cameras while looking dapper in a tie, matching waistcoat and jacket.

However, despite his victory, he'll be hoping to find an act more successful than winner Leanne Mitchell, whose first single charted poorly, and is yet to release further material.

Meanwhile, The Script frontman Danny emulated the show's logo, by giving photographers a victory sign.

Will.i.am donned studded gloves and his trademark sunglasses and Jessie J wore a black shirt dress and strappy heels, with her hair styled in a sleek bob, just before she shaves it off for Comic Relief on Friday.

They were also joined at the launch by returning hosts Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates at the event.

BBC bosses have brought back the talent show with new twists, after ratings dropped during the first series following the end of the "swivel chair" rounds.

An 11-date tour, featuring performances by the show's finalists, was cancelled following poor ticket sales.
