Holly Willoughby has explained her decision to step down as the host of reality talent show The Voice UK.

The This Morning presenter who also presents Surprise, Surprise and is a panellist on Celebrity Juice said in an interview with Express's S Magazine: "Something that's very important to me is keeping my work/life balance right.

"I love my job but I love my family too and while I enjoy doing The Voice and it's been a brilliant show, time is precious."

The 32-year-old mother of two, Harry, who is four and two-year-old Belle who is married to TV Executive Dan Baldwin, added: "I would like to have another one. If I'm lucky enough, but I don't know when. I'll just have to wait and see.

"I've always thought three would be nice but you never know what's going to happen, do you?"
