Sharon Corr to judge for The Voice

POP star Sharon Corr, below, will be on the judging panel of new reality television competition The Voice.

The former Corrs singer will be joining three other coaches on RTE's new show, scheduled to air in January.

The 41-year-old and her family are among Ireland's most famous music exports.

Only one other coach has been named - Blizzards frontman Niall Breslin. A source said: "The two other artists have sold more than 60 million albums between them and once their contracts are signed will galvanise the panel."
