Emma Willis couldn't hold back the tears during the Blind Auditions of 'The Voice UK' because she was blown away by the hopefuls' personal stories

Emma Willis couldn't stop crying while presenting 'The Voice UK'.

The 37-year-old star - who is co-hosting the singing competition with former JLS hunk Marvin Humes - couldn't fight back the tears during filming of the Blind Auditions for the third series of the show.

She said: "One day, I just cried for a long time. One after the other after the other.

"Marvin would be like 'you alright, babe?' and I'd be like 'No! Why do I keep getting them?'"

The duo have taken over from previous hosts Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates, who presented the first two series together, and they were shocked by how attached they got to the hopefuls' personal stories.

Emma explained: "It's so emotional. I don't think you expect to get that involved, but you do and you really get swept along way them."

However, Marvin couldn't help but feel he was in a position to dish out advice to the wannabes as his band had found fame on rival singing show 'The X Factor' in 2007 and he was certain that he could relate to what they were going through.

He said: "I've been through a similar process so I can lend that experience to the artists that are auditioning. It's amazing."
