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 Express.co.uk: “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.”

“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.
