The Voice 2013: Holly Willoughby's not happy about lack of screen time

Holly (The Voice)

The Voice UK host Holly Willoughby is reportedly "embarrassed" by her lack of screen time on the show.

We reported previous how Holly has barely featured on the series this yer, to the point that last weekend’s blind audition episode saw her on screen for just 25 seconds.

With a £400,000 fee, it means that Holly is pocketing an impressive £67,200 for every minute’s appearance.

And her co-host Reggie Yates hasn’t exactly been in the face of viewers either, with one fans asking: “Are Holly and Reggie even in #TheVoiceUK this year…"

And apparently, Holly's not too happy.

"She knew she hadn’t been given enough of a show, but when somebody worked out exactly how many minutes she had been on screen, she was completely gobsmacked," a source told Star magazine.

They added: "She was brought in as one of the big names for the show, and she says she finds it insulting how she's been pushed to the sidelines. It’s really embarrassing for her"

BBC insiders however have insisted that Holly and Reggie would take on a much bigger role when the live shows start in the summer.

The Voice blind auditions conclude this weekend on BBC One.
