Holly (The Voice)

The Voice UK host Holly Willoughby has admitted she'll miss Jessie J on next year's series.

Jessie announced last week that she would not be back on the panel for the third series next Spring

"I've absolutely loved my time on The Voice and I hope everyone saw and knows how passionately I felt about the show," she said in a statement on Twitter.

"However, I can't wait to promote my new record around the world and that has to take priority."

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Holly seemingly confirmed she would be back hosting the show alongside Reggie, although insisted she had no clue about who could be replacing Jessie.

"For the sake of the panel it needs to be . Otherwise it would be the wrong balance," Holly told the newspaper. "I'm really going to miss Jessie. We were lucky to have her as long as we did. Whoever replaces her is going to have big shoes to fill."

Paloma Faith, Rita Ora, Emeli Sandé and JLS singer Oritsé Williams have all already been linked to the panel, while bosses have yet to confirm whether or not Danny O'Donoghue, Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones will also be back.
