Big Brother host Emma Willis will be taking over the reigns of The Voice UK from Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates after two disappointing series.

In a statement released by the BBC yesterday (14 September), Emma confirmed that she's been offered the role for the third series that starts in 2014. Ooooh, we wonder how Holly and Reggie are feeling?

Emma said, "The Voice is an absolutely brilliant TV show with the unique ability to showcase and nurture amazing raw talent. I couldn't be more excited to be a part of it and I cannot wait to get started."

Holly also released a statement revealing why she would not be returning to the show - despite various 'boob-gate' scandals.

She said, "After much consideration, I will not be returning for series three of The Voice UK. 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."

Reggie added, "I've had a fantastic time on the last two series of The Voice UK and I wish all the team the best of luck for the new series."

But Emma won't be alone on the big red stage...a second co-presenter will be announced next week!

Recently Kylie Minogue was announced as a new judge on the hit singing competition.

What do you think of this shake up?
