ITV bosses are livid that the BBC has again poached some of its top stars, signing up Amanda Holden and Alison Hammond for a singing show.

Britain’s Got Talent judge Amanda and This Morning’s roving reporter Alison have been announced as regulars on BBC1’s new eight-part series I Can See Your Voice.

One senior ITV source admitted it was “extremely annoying” the pair had joined the Beeb show – hosted by fellow former ITV star Paddy McGuinness.

Their signings come a year after This Morning’s Holly Willoughby and The Chase host Bradley Walsh did BBC Christmas special Take Off, which became a series.

All this followed BGT’s Alesha Dixon and Dancing on Ice ’s Ashley Banjo being hired to front the Beeb’s The Greatest Dancer.

Insiders say Amanda, 49, may have taken the job amid fears coronavirus will make BGT auditions impossible next year.

In the show players try to guess who can and can’t sing from a group of mystery performers.

Amanda said: “The masqueraders will have to up their game to fool me.”

Alison, 45, added: “I reckon I’ll be able to spot who can sing or not straight away.”
