Deja vu for Voice viewers - Willis

The Voice host Emma Willis has said viewers will recognise some of the would-be singing stars auditioning for the talent show when it returns to TV next year.

Former Hear'Say star Danny Foster auditioned last year and Emma told Alan Carr: "There are a couple of people that you will recognise, definitely - a few actually - and there are also a few people escorting people to auditions that you'll recognise, so the friends and family of people auditioning are people you will know."

Emma, who also presents Big Brother on Channel 5, said Rita Ora was "doing absolutely brilliantly" after replacing Kylie Minogue as a mentor on the BBC show.

She said: "We've filmed everything up until the Knockouts, so I've seen her in full flow - and she's just, you can't imagine trying to replace Kylie, and being the person who sits in that chair after her, you would imagine has a very big job on their hands, and Rita's done it seamlessly, and really well. She said she was really nervous beforehand, but she just went in there, sat in the chair, and she was off and running."

Other guests on Carr's Chatty Man Christmas Day special include Downton Abbey actor Dan Stevens and singer-songwriter Sam Smith.

The show goes out on Channel 4 at 9pm on December 25.
