Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates have been confirmed as presenters of new BBC talent show, The Voice.
The programme, which is set to start in the spring, uses 'blind' auditions to judge acts on their vocals alone.
Holly, who is rumoured to have quit her role on ITV1's Dancing on Ice to front the new reality programme, said in a statement that she is excited to be part of the team:
"When it launched in America I watched one of the shows and thought it was just a fantastic format.
"When I heard it was coming to the UK I thought to myself how incredible it would be to be a part of it.
"It's going to be one roller coaster of a ride and I can't wait to get started!"
While Reggie Yates, best known for presenting the chart show on Radio One, added that it would be a "credible music show".
The Voice has already been a big hit in the States and is being tipped to rival the X Factor in the UK.
There will be three key stages to the programme - blind auditions, battle rounds and live performances - and celebrity coaches to mentor the acts.
Singer Jessie J is currently the only confirmed coach; however, three more star-names are set to be announced over the next few months.
