How We Do singer Rita Ora has signed up to replace Kylie Minogue as a coach on BBC singing show The Voice, according to reports.

The star, who recently split up with boyfriend DJ Calvin Harris, is said to have agreed a "six-figure" deal to join current coaches will.i.am, Ricky Wilson and Sir Tom Jones.

Minogue quit the show after one series to concentrate on her own music career.

She said she "absolutely loved" the talent show but that filming commitments would clash with her planned European tour.

Her departure was seen as a blow to the show which has struggled in the past against rival ITV shows.

Her debut appearance helped attract 8.4 million viewers - two million more than in the previous year when the line-up featured singer Jessie J and The Script frontman Danny O'Donoghue, alongside Sir Tom and will.i.am.

A BBC spokeswoman said they would not comment on speculation.
