Holden has enjoyed the role of television show judge for a while, given her 14 years as Simon Cowell’s second in command on Britain’s Got Talent.
As well as talent shows, Holden is a respected actress in her own right, featuring in ITV series Wild at Heart for two years from 2006-2008.
Holden was nominated for the prestigious Laurence Olivier award for her depiction of the title role in 2004 stage show Thoroughly Modern Millie.
When asked about I Can See Your Voice, Holden said: “It kind of goes against everything we as a society have been taught.
Which is, ‘Try not to judge anything by its appearance.’ But that’s exactly what we’re doing, because it’s all we’ve got.”

A much loved regular on This Morning, Hammond takes on her first taste of judging experience in I Can See Your Voice.
Hammond’s career was propelled by her stint in the 2002 series of Big Brother, which acted as a springboard for her to feature in a number of other shows, including Doctors and The Dumping Ground.
Though she will operate as judge this time around, Hammond has been on the other side of the judging desk when it comes to talent shows.
She featured in the 2014 series of Strictly Come Dancing, finishing tenth alongside her partner Aljaž Škorjanec.
Hammond has admitted that even she had her doubts over I Can See Your Voice when she was first pitched the idea, she said: “You look at it and even I was like, how is this going to work? And then for some reason, it just worked like a jigsaw.”

The show’s hosting responsibilities have been handed to Take Me Out presenter and comedian Paddy McGuinness.
Having hosted the ITV dating series for nine years, McGuinness has more than sufficient experience when it comes to steering the ship of a series.
McGuinness has already placed his happiness with the show on the record, stating: “On paper, I thought, ‘Is this going to work?’ But it works beautifully.”
