Judge Agrees To Move the Trial of Justin Ross Harris, Accused in Hot Car Death of His Toddler Son
A judge has agreed to move the trial of Justin Ross Harris, the man accused of murdering his 22-month-old son by allegedly intentionally leaving him in a hot car, on the grounds that the pretrial publicity has made it impossible to find an impartial jury. Jury selection began three weeks ago, when 550 potential jurors arrived at the Cobb County Courthouse in Marietta, Georgia. In 15 days, the prosecution and defense qualified approximately 40 panelists for potential service on the jury. But on Monday, that work was undone when judge Mary Staley ruled that the high-profile trial would be moved to a new location in Georgia.

Also taking part in the show this weekend are duo The Mac Bros, a Liverpool-based duo who decide to perform not one, not two, but three songs. Will their ambition win over the coaches?

And our third sneak peek is at Tim Arnold (whose mum is Polly Perkins, aka Rose Cotton from EastEnders!) He was signed with his band Jocasta in the '90s,
