Emma Willis thinks "The Voice" has finally found its feet.

The 43-year-old presenter thinks the popular talent show - which she has hosted since 2014 - has settled and become "more relaxed" after having previously changing networks and featuring a variety of celebrity coaches over the years.

"The Voice" - which currently features Will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones, Olly Murs and Jennifer Hudson on the panel - aired on BBC One from 2012 to 2016 and then moved to ITV in 2017.

Ahead of the ITV show's final on Saturday (05.04.19), Emma exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I think it has found its feet. You know things take time to bed in. Thankfully the show has stayed on air so we have had time to find our feet. I think it's become over the years more and more relaxed.

"It could be quite tense at times during the beginning. I think it's loosened off a bit and the coaches, we have had that foursome for a couple of years and they get on brilliantly.

"So that's found it's groove. I have a bit of time up here now so I have settled in a bit. It's just found it's feet and I think it's just tickling along to the best it ever has."

Stars such as Kylie Minogue, Ricky Wilson, Jessie J, Rita Ora, Paloma Faith and Boy George have all sized up contestants and been mentors on the show.

The blonde beauty also thinks the format of the programme is stronger than ever as this year the Lifeline vote was introduced - which allowed the public to vote their favourite into the Semi-Final.

She said: "I like the fact we have added a life line this year, that's been good. Because otherwise you know, and rightly so they're the ones that pick the ones that go through because they're the professionals and they know what their talking about.

"But I think it's nice that the public can get involved now just before we go live, so that was a good addition... Maybe two life lines next!"

The former "Big Brother" presenter also revealed she has no qualms about hosting the show because everyone on "The Voice" is "fantastic" and just there to showcase talent.

She said: "No hard part of working on the show because it's an absolute dream. The people that work on it are absolutely fantastic.

"I think it's a lovely feel good show. It's celebrating the talent we have in this country. It doesn't feel like work."

However, Emma - who first started presenting on MTV in 2002 - admitted she still gets "nervous" on air but also added she makes anxiety her "friend" and channels her energy positively.

She said: "Always! The minute I lose my nerves the minute I do something wrong. I mean I'll probably do something wrong anyways, that's alright. Yeah I like nerves, make nerves your friend I think."
