Emma Willis wants to be drinking partners with Kylie Minogue.
The 37-year-old star - who currently is co-presenter of 'The Voice' - has admitted she would love to become close friends with the judge and said while they speak about fashion, she hopes they can become closer.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper's TV Magazine, she said: "I absolutely love her. I've always been a bit of a Kylie fan. I had my hair permed like hers when I was a kid.
"At the moment we chat about outfits and she tells me she likes my hair, but I'd like to think soon we'll be going down the pub as mates. I would be very excited to sit in a bar with Kylie."
Despite her huge success thus far, the star host admitted she has been humbled by being hired by the BBC to help front their TV talent show.
She added: "I've had years of not getting the job I thought I would, but you keep pushing on. When I got 'The Voice', I was so excited.
"I always watched it at home with the kids and I loved it because it's about emotions, it's about people and it's about music - a hat-trick.
"It's a massive thing ... I mean, it's the BBC, Saturday night television. I don't know why they picked me, though."
