'The Voice' presenter, Emma Willis, has revealed she is "shy" around the BBC One show's new judge, Rita Ora

Emma Willis is "shy" around Rita Ora.

The 38-year-old television presenter - who hosts BBC One show, 'The Voice' alongside Marvin Humes - has admitted that she is in awe of the "superstar" singer who has joined the talent show as a judge this series.

Emma shared: "I'm used to interviewing people like that and sometimes you feel there's a line between interviewer and interviewee.

"So, sometimes I feel a bit like: 'Ooh, maybe they won't want to talk to me'. I feel shy, totally. I feel like they're the superstars and I'm this little thing tottering around in the background."

Emma - who also presents 'Celebrity Big Brother' - credits her husband, Matt Willis of pop band McBusted, for helping her to "settle down" in her career.

She explained: "The minute I settled down, had kids and got married, the minute I stopped stressing about where I should be and where I should go, it kind of went there naturally.

"It was the making of me. Thank god for Matt Willis and his willy."

Meanwhile, Emma - who has Isabelle, five and Ace, three with the 'Air Guitar' hitmaker - admits that it was a "shock to the system" when Matt went out on tour again.

She told Fabulous magazine: "Him being in a band again was a right old shock to the system.

"I was totally excited, but it's full-on. I haven't really seen him much for a couple of months."
