Pixie Lott is reportedly being lined up as a coach on The Voice UK Kids.

A sketchy piece in The Sun newspaper suggests that the Mamma Do hitmaker could be a unique addition to the spin-off series.

ITV has signed up to air two children's editions of the spinning-chair talent contest - featuring 7 to 14-year-old contestants - the first to air in the UK.

While the kids shows are a hit in other countries, the BBC decided not to broadcast any series when they were in charge of The Voice.

ITV have already confirmed that Emma Willis will host the Kids version and Will.i.am will be one of three coaches.

It's understand a second coach will also come from the main show, which started filming this week with Will, Sir Tom Jones, Gavin Rossdale and Jennifer Hudson.

A third coach will be unique to The Voice Kids and Pixie seems to be a perfect choice.

The Voice UK Kids is rumoured to air in the Spring after the main show finishes.

It's process will be pretty much similar to the main show but just on a smaller scale.

It has been suggested the show could air stripped across a week or two, similar to the Britain's Got Talent live semi-finals.

Applications for The Voice Kids UK Series 1 took place earlier this year alongside auditions for the main show, but are now closed.
