Holly Willoughby has quit the Voice as she wants to spend more time with her family. Big Brother's Emma Willis is her replacement. Holly has said it was a tough decision to leave the show and it was a privilege to be involved for two years, but she feels she's missing out on family time with all of her work commitments. Holly, who also stars on ITV2 show Celebrity Juice, wrote on twitter, “After much consideration, I will not be returning for series 3 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 everyone the best of luck.”

Soon afterwards she confirmed that Emma, who also works on This Morning with her, would be taking over, writing: “I leave you in the safe hands of the beautiful @Emma_Willis …congratulations my darlin girl.” Emma then tweeted: “I am insanely excited to be joining the team @BBCTheVoiceUK What a bonkers year it's been… Can't wait to get started!!!” Last week we told you that Kylie Minogue will be taking Jessie J's place on the show.
