bring that adults for­got and that is just life and no ex­tra agen­das, fun...” notes the LA-born star.

“Kids know how to play. When was the last time as adults we were like: ‘Yo, let’s go out­side and play!’”

Lon­don-born singer Paloma Faith has also worked as a coach on the main se­ries of the voice, back in 2016. So, how does The Voice Kids com­pare?

“I pre­fer it,” says the 38-yearold, who is also an ac­tress, hav­ing re­cently starred as the vil­lain in TV se­ries Pen­ny­worth.

“I’m hav­ing the time of my life. I feel like the main show gave me a lot of anx­i­ety, but this gives me pure joy in buck­et­loads. You see it with your own eyes, how grow­ing up and be­com­ing an adult gives us in­hi­bi­tion, self-doubt... But we all, at some point when we were kids, had a pu­rity and our tal­ents could re­ally shine.”

“I feel like it’s about not pa­tro­n­is­ing them, so just say­ing: ‘Take a breath, you’re bril­liant’. It’s about en­cour­age­ment, it’s not about draw­ing at­ten­tion to it be­cause kids are re­ally aware of em­bar­rass­ment and stuff.” The Voice Kids re­turns to STV tonight, 7.25pm.
