The Voice UK is to have a spin-off show on BBC Two, produced by Wall to Wall and presented by Zoe Ball.

Ball, who also hosts Strictly Come Dancing's sister show, will anchor the new BBC Two slot live at 6.30pm from Monday to Friday between The Voice UK's first live show and the live final. 30-minutes each evening will feature interviews from the coaches, special live performances from the finalists and gossip from behind-the-scenes.

Moira Ross, head of entertainment, Wall to Wall, says: "Having a spin-off series for The Voice UK means we can give fans of the show unprecedented access to everything that goes on behind the scenes and tell the stories we don't have time to cover on BBC One."

Series three of The Voice UK launched on BBC One on Saturday 11 January 2014 with a new  coaching panel of, Kylie Minogue, Sir Tom Jones and Ricky Wilson, plus new presenting duo Emma Willis and Marvin Humes. It has proved more popular than series two, peaking at over 10 million on 1 February, though audiences have dipped to 7.5 million.

The new spin-off series has been commissioned by BBC daytime controller, Damian Kavanagh and commissioning editor, Pam Cavannagh. The series will be executive produced by Moira Ross and Alex McLeod for Wall to Wall.

The Voice format was developed by Talpa Media and is produced for the BBC by Wall to Wall in close collaboration with Talpa Media
