The Welsh legend will re-join the judging panel of the talent show when it moves to ITV next year.

It's like our prayers have been answered! 

After being omitted from the judging panel of last year's series of 'The Voice', Sir Tom Jones will re-join when the show broadcasts on ITV for the first time next year.

The 76-year-old will be joined in the red seats by veteran judge, Oscar-winning singer and actress Jennifer Hudson and rock star Gavin Rossdale.

Sir Tom accused the BBC of "sub-standard behaviour" last year when he was excluded from the judging panel at the last minute but ITV, who bought the rights to show, have invited him back.

"I had some great times on the show and I can't wait to again discover and help some brand new talent. And of course be back with my pal," the Welsh singer said. 

And is equally thrilled. Speaking of the news he said: "It's the freaking best. I've missed him a lot."

We've missed Tom too and now we'll definitely be watching!
