Spice Girls legend Mel C, 47, was announced as the latest coach to join The Voice Kids, as the popular ITV talent show returns for a brand new series this festive period. Despite having featured on similar programmes in the past, the singer, whose real name Melanie Chisholm, admitted this is her “favourite’.

The whole ethos of it being The Voice and not judging books by the cover but listening to the talent

In a new interview ahead of the three-part series which is set to air later this month, she gushed over her appointment to the judging panel.

She will join Pixie Lott, Will.i.am and Danny Jones in the big red chairs, replacing Paloma Faith.

The Only Love Can Hurt Like This hitmaker recently announced that due to the imminent arrival of her second child she will not be returning this series.

Of being part of the search for the freshest new singing talent, Mel said: “I always wanted to do because it’s my favourite.

“I think it’s the most positive, the most productive and the whole ethos of it being The Voice and not judging books by the cover but listening to the talent.”

The spin-off version of the main show sees aspiring singers aged seven to 14, take to the stage in a bid to impress the famous coaching panel.

“When you turn around it’s a Brucie Bonus to then see the talent, to see they’re so full of energy and great little stage performers with great charisma,” Mel continued.

“I’ve always loved the whole idea behind the show.

“I just think that, as these shows go, I do feel like it gives the contestants the best experience.”

Sporty Spice also admitted recently she had “a bit of a weep” during her time filming the series.

She was “over the moon” when asked to join the show, adding: “I have to say that the experience has actually completely surpassed my expectations in every way.

“I’ve fallen in love with everybody who works on the show and the children have impressed me in so many ways.”

Mel went on: “My team is amazing. Obviously sitting in that big red chair it was a bit surreal on my first day.

“I did have a little bit of a weep. It was quite overwhelming.

“Being a fan of both the kids and the adults show, being in the studio, being on set, being in that big red chair, is very surreal but once those kids start singing you just go with your heart.

“Sometimes the hardest thing is not to turn and we could only pick four, so we had to be so, so choosy and my team just worked out brilliantly.

“I’ve got some incredible singers. And really special people as well.

“They are really humble, they don’t even realise how brilliant they are and they really look out for each other so, yeah, I love them.”

The Voice Kids starts on December 27 at 7.30pm on ITV.
