Holly Willoughby to quit The Voice UK for new deal with ITV?

Holly (The Voice)

Holly Willoughby could be the next person to quit The Voice UK, it's been claimed.

Despite previously suggesting she would be back, it's being reported this week that Holly is wanted in a 'golden handcuffs deal' with ITV.

It'd ban Holly for taking on projects with rival channels, and could force her to quit the BBC One show.

Holly is said to earn £400,000 per series of The Voice, but ITV want to sign her in a new multi-million pound multi-year deal as host of This Morning and other shows.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: "Holly’s representatives are in the midst of new negotiations.

"Top of their wish-list is a lucrative golden handcuffs deal."

Representatives for both ITV and Holly declined to comment on the speculation.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph about The Voice 2014 recently, Holly said she'd miss Jessie J on the panel.

"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."

The Voice UK will air next Spring on BBC One.
