The Voice UK 2013: Holly Willoughby admits to getting bored with the coaches' pitches

Holly (The Voice)

The voice 2013 cohost Holly Willoughby has confessed she wishes the slow coaches would often get on with it

Holly, who hosts the show alongside Radio 1 DJ Reggie Yates, admitted to often getting bored by the coaches pitching after they turned around for an artist.

The Voice sees the power to decide which seem to join given to the auditionee, with the four coaches only able to use their powers of persuasion them to pick them.

But Holly revealed that sometimes the decisions would take hours to film, as the wannabes quizzed the panel and they each tried to coax the singer onto their teams.

The weekend saw Alys Willaims take 23 minutes to decide, but there's apparently worse to come.

Holly explained: "I had one girl who had four yeses and she had to choose which coach she was going to go with. I'm not joking, it took an hour. Even had family had to sit down."

But despite the long days of filming, former Xtra Factor host Holly reckons it's all worth it in the end.

She added: "What you find with this show is that it is not as tough as you think. Even if it is a no from that judges and no one turns around, you have 15 to 20 minutes on stage with these for giving an amazing advice.

"It doesn't feel like a negative thing – they have such a great experience in that moment. We never have to pick anyone up, which is nice."

The Voice UK airs at the slightly earlier time of 6:45PM this weekend on BBC One.
