The new series of BBC One’s The Voice has become the first to use the new £1m facilities at dock10′s largest high definition studio.
Production company Wall To Wall and the BBC have now completed filming for the blind auditions stage, which is set for transmission in January.
Kylie Minogue, Ricky Wilson, will.i.am and Tom Jones formed the judging panel.
The 12,500 sq ft HQ1 studio has been fitted out with bespoke De Sisti lighting and scenery hoists, to speed up build and break-down of sets.
Set-up and rehearsals series ran for 10 days followed by five days of filming, with the set remaining in situ throughout.
Mark Senior, dock10 chief executive, said: “We were delighted to welcome The Voice UK back to dock10 again for the filming of the exciting Blind Auditions. MediaCityUK is a private campus and, as such, we have an unprecedented level of control which enables us to facilitate our clients’ requests without fuss.”
The first series of The Voice peaked at 9.21m but viewing figures dropped to 7.65m for the second series.
