Flame-Haired presenter Angela Scanlon has brought a fresh new element of glamour to The UK Voice.

The stylist and fashion 'it' girl has landed an exciting new role as digital presenter on the hit show.

Angela has had great success on Irish screens fronting shows including Full Frontal and Getaways and now this role has the potential to propel her to further fame across the Irish Sea.

"I'm really excited, it's a great start to the New Year. I'm jumping straight into it and I couldn't be happier," she told the Herald. "I'm not very good at keeping secrets so I'm delighted that I can talk about it now.

"We had the launch yesterday and it was brilliant to meet all the coaches and the other presenters Emma Willis and Marvin Humes - they were really sweet.

"Rita had two outfit changes and Tom Jones, he just has such a presence."

Angela (30) will present the show's online content, including backstage interviews with the coaches and contestants.


"I'm really excited for the live shows - I've done live stuff before as a contributor where I'm being interviewed so I'm looking forward to the challenge of being on the other side," she said.

Meanwhile, pop star and Voice judge Rita Ora (24) admitted to feeling as nervous as the singers as she made her debut on the TV show.

The Black Widow singer joins Kaiser Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson (36), Will.i.am (39) and Tom Jones (74) as coaches on this year's series.

The Fifty Shades of Grey actress, who replaces Kylie Minogue as the sole female coach, joined her co-stars to unveil the first episode ahead of its broadcast on BBC1 on Saturday. "I'm watching it for the first time, so I'm so nervous right now," she admitted.
