Bringing some joy to Saturday night on ITV this weekend is the return of The Voice Kids and Emma Willis is back at the helm supporting the youngsters who hope to be musicians. Speaking ahead of the first episode tonight, the 44-year-old recalled how the Blind Auditions left husband Matt “crying his eyes out”.

The host told press including “It’s a lovely feel-good show, isn’t it?

“Seeing little kids who have these massive voices and are hugely talented. They just make you smile.

“I was watching it, the first episode, eating my lunch and I already know what happens but Matt is standing behind me crying his eyes out.

“It has that emotion – even the cute things can make you cry with happiness, I feel like we do need that bit of lightness on the television.”

There are certainly a number of emotional moments in the first episode and before its even aired, Emma teased she knows who will win.

She is certain that has the winning hopeful on his team.

Coach Pixie Lott had the winning youngster on her team for the first two years before Danny Jones and 13-year-old Sam won last year.

But this year, both Emma and new coach Paloma Faith have their money on winning.

She explained: “My money is on Will this year, I am calling as the winner.”

“I think I know who you’re thinking about and I think it might be possible also,” Paloma added.

Meanwhile new addition to the coaching panel, Paloma, went on to reveal she prefers working on The Voice Kids compared to The Voice.

She noted: “I feel like the main show gave me a lot of anxiety, but this gives me pure joy in bucket loads.

“You see it with your own eyes, how growing up and becoming an adult gives us inhibition, self-doubt.

“But we all, at some point when we were kids, had a purity and our talents could really shine.

“I feel like it’s about not patronising them, so just saying ‘Take a breath, you’re brilliant.’”

Paloma continued: “It’s about encouragement, it’s not about drawing attention to it because kids are really aware of embarrassment and stuff, probably as much as adults would be.

“It’s not supposed to be a defining moment for any of them.

“I wouldn’t do a show that was giving that pressure to kids.”

While Paloma and Emma think will win, could the newcomer have found this year’s star talent?

The Voice Kids airs tonight on ITV at 7.30pm
