The Voice UK Kids sees more tears from the adults than the children

The Voice UK Kids is coming soon to ITV and host Emma Willis has said to expect tears.

The Voice Kids is a brand new search for Britain’s best young vocal talent, open to solo singers between the ages of seven and 14.

It's the first ever series of the show in the UK although the Kids spin-off has already proved a success in other countries.

Pop sensations Pixie Lott and McFly’s Danny Jones will join will.i.am as coaches on ITV’s The Voice Kids when it launches in the summer, with Emma hosting it all.

Emma has said that filming was "emotional" but revealed it was harder for the adults than the kids.

"It's really, really emotional, having kids as well, you put yourself in the parents position and imagine it being your kid up there," Emma said ahead of the new series.

She told the Radio Times: "You want a turn for every single one of them.

"I've got to say I was worried how they'd react to not getting a turn but they take it better than the grown ups, they're just incredible. I think we underestimate how robust children are."

Emma added: "I can't wait for it to come on air, it's a really feel good show."

The Voice UK Kids will start on ITV in June on Saturday nights.

Alongside Emma hosting the main show, Cel Spellman will front switch-over show The V Room just like with The Voice UK, available on demand across ITV Hub and social platforms.
