The 40-year- old beauty - who has worked on the singing show since 2014 - has confirmed she will be returning to present the programme when it hits screens early 2017.

Emma - who has just given birth to her third child - daughter Trixie - said of her gig: "'The Voice UK' is very close to my heart and I'm absolutely delighted to be back on the show."

The TV sweetheart joined the programme alongside Marvin Humes two years ago but it's not yet known whether the former JLS hunk has been asked by bosses to reprise his role as host.

However, the 31-year-old singer's wife Rochelle Humes hinted last month that he will move with 'The Voice', which has spent the last five years being screened on BBC, when it shifts across to its new channel ITV for the next series.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she teased: "He hasn't left 'The Voice'... well... erm... no, I don't know."

Meanwhile, although it looks like bosses have secured their hosts for the next series, the mentoring line-up doesn't look so bright as producers are yet to find their four coaches.

will.i.am - who has been on the show since it started - has reportedly been asked to reprise his judging role, while the fate of Boy George and Paloma Faith, who joined the programme last year for one series, is not yet known.

Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson - who has featured on the panel for three years - announced he was quitting the show after the last series in order to focus on his music.
