The Voice UK presenter Emma Willis has revealed that she does not have a contingency plan if her baby arrives early.

The 39 year old, who is currently expecting her third child with husband Matt Willis, will be eight months' pregnant while hosting the live episodes of the BBC One singing show.

Speaking to the Press Association at an event in central London to celebrate new programming and a rebranding of Channel 5, she said: "I honestly haven't prepared for the eventuality that it will come early. And I probably should because there's every possibility that it will."

Referring to her co-presenter, former JLS singer Marvin Humes, she added: "So I guess Marv will be doing it all by himself. Marv's got his towels ready."

The Big Brother presenter also said her pregnancy was "all good" and she had been feeling the same as when she was pregnant with her other children - daughter Isabelle, six, and son Ace, four - with Busted singer and husband of eight years, Matt.

Meanwhile, she was also asked by PA whether she would like to continue presenting The Voice UK when it moves from the BBC to ITV in 2017. She said: "I'd love to.

"But you know, the nature of the beast is that anything can happen and it's moving to a different channel - they might want to totally change it and that's just the way it goes. But fingers crossed they will want me to do it. I'd love to still do it."

Willis, who has just finished presenting another series of Celebrity Big Brother on Channel 5, admitted that the moment she was most shocked by on this series was when US star Tiffany Pollard mistakenly thought David Gest had died.

The incident occurred shortly after David Bowie's ex-wife Angie had been told the news of her former husband's death. However, Pollard instead believed that Angie was referring to fellow housemate David Gest having died when she emerged from behind the scenes of the Channel 5 show, saying: "David's dead."

"I think that was not only an unfortunate and extremely sad moment on one side, it was just utterly baffling. And the most genuine yet awkward mistake," said Willis.
