BBC may launch junior version of 'The Voice'

Tuesday May 29, 2012

TV bosses could launch a junior version of The Voice, despite the current show's low ratings.

A children's programme has already been screened in the Netherlands, the birthplace of the talent contest which has now spread around the world.

The programme's Dutch creator, John de Mol, said: "The Voice Kids was a tremendous success in Holland. There was a big emotional reaction from the parents of the children taking part."

In an interview with Mediaguardian, he said there was a "fair chance" that the programme - aimed at eight to 14-year-olds - would be screened by the BBC. 

Mr de Mol also said there were likely to be changes to the format for the future.
