Find out who has joined the show as Tom Jones confirms his exit from the panel.

Boy George and Paloma Faith are set to join The Voice Series 5. The pair will replace Sir Tom Jones and Rita Ora, who was earlier this year announced as a judge on the upcoming 12th series of The X Factor.

Longtime coaches Ricky Wilson and will.i.am will return to the show, as will hosts Emma Willis and Marvin Humes.

"I'm thrilled and excited to be a coach on The Voice UK," Boy George said, "I'm a huge fan of the show and have watched and engaged with it from Series 1.

"If I can help someone to win I will be delighted. What a wonderful opportunity to share my experiences and help someone move forward with their musical career. I can't wait to sit in that chair!"

Paloma Faith added: "I'm really excited about working with creative people who are there not just to be great singers, but also innovative personalities and performers.

"I have a long history of helping break artists as in my club nights I booked Kate Nash, Adele, and The Noisettes before they hit the big time and four of my band members have gone on to pursue successful solo careers.

"I'm really looking forward to getting my teeth into something that cultivates the talents of another person and takes the focus off myself for a bit."

Series 5 of The Voice will return to BBC1 in January 2016.
