The Voice spin-off show axed

Updated: 

ITV has shelved plans for a spin-off show of The Voice - for now.

According to RadioTimes.com, the broadcaster had additionally planned to put out a show on ITV2, although no presenter had been assigned to the series.

But TV bosses want to focus their attention on the main series, hosted by Emma Willis and featuring will.i.am and possibly Sir Tom Jones returning as coaches.

"We are currently focused on The Voice UK and The Voice Kids, both of which will broadcast on ITV in 2017, and there are no plans at present for a spin-off show," a spokesman was quoted as saying.

ITV poached the show last year after the BBC said it refused to enter into a "bidding war" for the series.

Zoe Ball hosted The Voice: Louder On Two on BBC2 in 2014 but it was axed after just one year.
