"I love being there. This is a great experience for me. It's my first time experiencing it on this side, so I’m taking it all in as I go."

She isn't the only judge that wants a comeback, with Gavin Rossdale recently commenting that he "really, really enjoys" his role.

ITV has commissioned two further series of The Voice, and the broadcaster has already opened auditions for 2018 on its website.

"It would be so difficult for me because I think they’re both amazing. I’m just happy to have two."

Those two are Jamie Miller and Mo Adeniran, the latter of whom is the bookies' favourite to win.


They're up against's act Michelle John, and Sir Tom Jones's hopeful Into The Ark.
