After the first series of The Voice failed to impress viewers during its live shows stage, the big wigs at the Beeb have now decided to give the spinning chairs a starring role when series two returns.

Great news for all of you who enjoyed playing along on office chairs as much as us then!

Viewing figures for the Jessie J and Will.i.am judged show managed to beat Britain's Got Talent in the rating's battle last year but dramatically fell as soon as the blind auditions stage was over.

Talking at the Edinburgh TV Festival, BBC controller of entertainment Mark Linsey acknowledged that the show ran into trouble during the shift from Blind Auditions to the Live Shows.

He admitted: "It's not rocket science to say that the Blind Auditions were the best bit of the series."

Talking about the problems with the live shows, Linsey admitted that the program had failed to separate itself for the generic format used in other talent competitions.

He said: "Those live shows, the audience became over familiar with the grammar. It still works on Strictly and X Factor, but audiences became over familiar with it."

Linsey added: "We will be doing less live shows."

As reported yesterday, Jessie J has announced that despite rumours of her departure, she will be rejoining the show for its second run.

The popstar posted on Twitter: "I WILL be a coach on the 2nd series of The Voice UK!"

"As I have always said. Unless you hear it from me- Don't always believe what you read! Can't wait! #thevoiceuk #weback *fist to the sky*"

With Jessie back on board and the promise of more spinning chair action, we seriously can't wait for the second series to get underway.
