Zoe says of her role on the show, which is yet to be named: "I'm super excited to be involved in The Voice, 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, and Ricky.

"I shall bring everyone a little closer to the action and I promise not to sing!"

The Voice UK returns with its sixth episode on Saturday 15 February at 7.10pm on BBC1.
