Holly Willoughby Wants Female The Voice Coach
Host says Jessie J replacement should be female to retain 'balance'...
The Wild singer announced that she would be leaving the show last week, and though Will.I.Am, Sir Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue have yet to confirm whether they will be back for the third series, Holly believes a female presence is essential.
The host of the BBC talent show told the Daily Telegraph: "For the sake of the panel it needs to be [a woman]. Otherwise it would be the wrong balance."
Holly also praised Jessie - who quit the show in order to focus on her own music career - saying: "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."
Recent rumours suggest the BBC agrees with Holly, with Paloma Faith, Rita Ora and Emeli Sandé reportedly on their wishlist of replacement coaches.
Holly caused something of a storm during the recent final, with her cleavage drawing complaints from viewers.
