The show – airing weeknights from 6.30pm on BBC Two – will offer viewers 30 minutes of exclusive interviews with The Voice UK’s superstar coaches, as well as special live performances from the finalists and all the backstage gossip.
I’m super excited to be involved in The Voice UK, and I’m doing some star jumps and squats to limber up for action as I speak.
Fans can think of me as the nosey naughty one who can ask questions we all want answering by their favourite acts and of course Kylie, Tom, will.i.am and Ricky. I shall bring everyone a little closer to the action and I promise not to sing! – Ball
The programme will launch following The Voice UK’s first live show and will continue until the final.
Ball already hosts a companion show for the BBC’s most popular entertainment series – Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two.
Series three of The Voice UK launched on BBC One on Saturday 11 January 2014 with Kylie Minogue and Ricky Wilson joining will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones in the spinning red chairs. Emma Willis and Marvin Humes also replaced Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates as hosts for the current series.
The BBC note that the talent show has been the most-watched Saturday night show on British TV in its first four weeks on air and peaked at over 10 million viewers last weekend (1 February).
The Voice format was developed by Talpa Media and is produced for the BBC by Wall to Wall in close collaboration with Talpa Media
