Following the news that she is expecting her first child, it has been confirmed that Meghan Trainor will not return to The Voice as a coach for its tenth series next year.
A spokesperson for The Voice UK said: "Huge congratulations to Meghan on the wonderful news she is expecting her first child. Meghan has been a fantastic Coach on The Voice UK and we look forward to seeing Meghan return for the end of Series 9, coming soon to ITV. Everyone at The Voice UK and ITV would like to wish Meghan the very best in 2021 and beyond."
Meghan commented: "I had such a great time being a Coach on the Voice UK and spending time with everyone! I wish I could come back for Season 10, but I’m taking time to start my family and want to be really safe with the current travel restrictions. I’ll be missing you all very much and hope to see you soon!"
