Reggie Yates reckons new show The Voice will be more credible than The X Factor.

The new talent show, which the presenter and DJ will host alongside Holly Willoughby, is expected to air on BBC One in the spring.

Reggie told The Sun: "It's about time there was a cool, credible show like this. I love The X Factor - I follow it every week. But this is a different beast.

"The Voice is more to do with finding musical talent rather than pop stars. We want credible people and they'll be getting constructive criticism, not catchphrases."

The all-star judging panel of the show - which originated in the US - will comprise of Sir Tom Jones, The Script's frontman Danny O'Donoghue, Jessie J and Black Eyed Peas star Will.i.am.

Reggie said: "When I was in the States I saw the show and I was gripped. There's nothing like this on British TV so I'm really chuffed to be doing it."

Don't bring your work home with you. Although you're wonderfully efficient in your job, you require different skills when dealing with friends and family. Be generous with your praise, resources and encouragement. Someone who is struggling needs moral support. Giving a lecture about personal responsibility will not help. Instead, lend a sympathetic ear. Ask questions. Picture things from the other person's point of view. A receptive attitude will strengthen your relationship.More
