Ball to host The Voice sister show
Zoe Ball is set to present a spin-off of The Voice.
The sister show will air from Monday to Friday on BBC Two and will give viewers an access all areas look at the programme, which sees coaches Will.i.am, Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones and Ricky Wilson mentoring wannabe pop stars.
The new show, the first spin-off of The Voice in its three-year history, will run between the first live programme of the current series and the live final and will include "exclusive interviews" with the coaches and live performances from the finalists.
Zoe - who also hosts Strictly Come Dancing's popular sister show It Takes Two - promised to give viewers all the behind-the-scenes gossip.
She said: "I'm super excited to be involved in The Voice UK, and I'm doing some star jumps and squats to limber up for action as I speak.
"Fans can think of me as the nosey naughty one who can ask questions we all want answering by their favourite acts and of course Kylie, Tom, Will.i.am and Ricky. I shall bring everyone a little closer to the action and I promise not to sing!"
The main BBC One show has been a ratings hit.
Digital Spy reported that on Saturday it topped the ratings again, drawing 8.44 million viewers.
