Emma has hosted the show with Marvin Humes since 2014, when they took over from original presenters, Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates.

Explaining her excitement about following the show as it moves channels, Emma said: “The Voice UK is very close to my heart and I’m absolutely delighted to be back on the show. Roll on the blind auditions!”

Marvin won’t be joining Emma, with a statement from ITV reading: “Marvin won’t be appearing on next year’s series but remains very much a part of the ITV family, and we look forward to working with him on other projects in the near future.”

The Mirror reports that he also said: “I’ve loved every minute of working on The Voice for the past three series and will miss working with Emma and the team.

"It’s one of the best shows on TV and I’ll definitely be tuning in to see the new series. I wish the new team the best of luck and look forward to working more with ITV in the near future.”

The 2017 winner, who will be following in the footsteps of this year’s champion Kevin Simms, will win a record contract with Polydor Records.

While the hosting is sorted, producers are reportedly struggling to find famous faces to fill the spinning red judging seats, with Sir Paul McCartney, Gary Barlow and Kylie Minogue all apparently turning down offers.

Jess Glynne has also revealed that she rejected a chair on the show, telling The Sun: “There have been talks. People have approached me about it but it’s just not something I’m interested in right now to be honest.

“Maybe at some point in the future but not at the moment.”
