BBC boss thinks The Voice UK will be VERY different on ITV

The Voice UK on ITV will be very different, it's been suggested.

The singing contest concluded its fifth and final run on BBC One last night ahead of its move over to ITV in the new year.

Now BBC boss Alan Tyler, currently the acting controller of entertainment, has predicted that ITV will take the show in a different direction.

He claimed that The Voice on the BBC had been "warm" and "encouraging", with contestants that viewers take to.

"The Voice lands in a very BBC way. It's hugely warm; massively encouraging," he told the Daily Telegraph. "ITV, and I imagine you will see this, will probably produce that sort of content in quite a different way.

"If you think about why Strictly is really successful, why Bake Off is successful, the same for MasterChef, it's because the shows are populated by people you really like and want to spend time with. Those people tend to exhibit tremendous humility."

Whether or not ITV will be making changes to The Voice remains to be seen but the show could definitely do with some tweaking.

The live finals in particular have always struggled with just 4.5 million watching last night's show compared to more than 9 million tuning in for ITV's Britain's Got Talent.

Once again The Voice shed its audience between the blind auditions and live shows, dropping more than 2.5 million viewers as the series progressed.
