“The Voice UK has broken all records for a new entertainment show on the BBC. I’m really proud of the coaches, artists and producers who have achieved this,” said Danny Cohen, the Controller of BBC One.

“It’s great for BBC viewers that we have launched a new Saturday night entertainment show that has had such a big impact and connects so well with BBC values.
