Danny O'Donoghue can't wait for the new series of 'The Voice' to return.

The Script frontman is reprising his role as a coach on the BBC One singing show and insists the second series will be a big improvement on the first one as a lot of changes have been made.

One decision is to increase the number of wannabes each coach can take through to the battle rounds, an idea Danny is very happy with.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: "We're going to come out with bigger teams and the battle rounds will be spread over about two weeks, not one weekend.

"By the finals there'll be a condensed number so viewers can go, 'Oh, that's my favourite.' "

The first series of the show was won by Sir Tom Jones' act Leanne Mitchell and Danny recently said she wasn't the best artist in the competition.

Asked if he was disappointed that Leanne's debut single 'Run To You' failed to make the UK top 40 singles chart, he said: "She wasn't on my team so I can't feel that much disappointment. She won the show, you know, in the final she was technically the best singer. Was she technically the best artist? No. But that's just my opinion.

"She was definitely the best singer on the night, but it was unfortunate that other people didn't get a look in, ones that would have suited pop music better."

As well as Danny and Tom returning to the show, original coaches will.i.am and Jessie J have also signed up for the second series.
