Just when we thought The Voice UK was getting back on track with the addition of pop princess Kylie Minogue, the show hit another bump in the road as the hostess with 'the mostess' Holly Willoughby announced she would not be returning for another series.
The rather popular TV presenter quite simply can't keep up with all the extra work she's been doing on top of her This Morning duties and has decided to give The Voice a miss in order to spend more time with her family. "After much consideration, I will not be returning for series three of The Voice UK", she said in a statement. "I've had two wonderful years on the show, and I feel very privileged to have been a part of it."
"Finding the right balance between my work and family life is my priority and this has contributed to my decision. I look forward to watching the next series from my sofa, and I wish the whole team the best of luck."
Holly's co-host Reggie Yates won't be returning either. He took to Twitter on Sunday to confirm that he was saying sayonara to the show too, but it remains unclear whether or not the decision was his to make. "I've had a fantastic time on the last two series of The Voice UK" he said, "and I wish all the team the best of luck for the new series".
Reggie's replacement will be announced in due course, but they've already lined up a new hostess in the form of Emma Willis. It seems as though the BBC bosses were impressed with the new Big Brother host, who replaced our own Brian Dowling on the Channel 5 show earlier this year. Talk about your go-to gal eh?
"The Voice is an absolutely brilliant TV show with the unique ability to showcase and nurture amazing raw talent", Willis said. "I couldn't be more excited to be a part of it and I cannot wait to get started."
We can't help but wonder if a fresh face at the helm and Kylie spinning around in her chair will be enough to save the show though. Season 2 suffered in the ratings, peaking only during the Grand Final, when Irish lass Andrea Begley took gold for Team Danny.
Can Emma save the day? We sure do hope so.
