Spice Girl Melanie C has been named as Paloma Faith's replacement on The Voice Kids' coaching panel.

She will join McFly's Danny Jones, will.i.am and Pixie Lott on the show, after Paloma announced last year she was pregnant with her second child and would be stepping down as a result.

New coach Melanie admits she's really looking forward to the challenge. "I’ve always been a huge fan of The Voice so I am super excited to be a coach on The Voice Kids this year," she says. "I can’t wait to get in one of those big red chairs and Spice things up!"

Danny Jones adds: ''It's great to be getting going on another series of The Voice Kids and I'm chuffed to have Melanie C joining the gang. Every year when I think the talent can't be topped I find myself blown away by the new up and coming kids.

"I'm looking forward to discovering some brand new little superstars, it's also a mission of mine to catch up with Pixie’s winning streak.”

Pixie Lott says: "It's great to be heading back into the studio for a new series of The Voice Kids. I am the biggest Spice Girls fan, they were the first concert I ever went to, so it's such a thrill to have Melanie C joining the show too, upping the level of girl power even more!"

will.i.am said: “I’m looking forward to returning to my red chair and listening out for more kids with incredible voices. A big welcome to Melanie C this year, also known as Sporty Spice. What do you think of the nickname Coach Spice?”

Emma Willis will return on presenting duties for the show, which aims to find the next generation of singing talent in kids aged seven to 14.

The show is due to air over the Christmas period.
