Meghan Trainor is already eying a return to The Voice U.K. after stepping down as a coach following her pregnancy news.

The U.S. singer replaced Jennifer Hudson on the panel, joining Tom Jones, Olly Murs and for its ninth series this year, but last month Meghan confirmed she wouldn't be back for series 10 as she prepares to welcome her first child with actor Daryl Sabara.

Her replacement, British singer Anne-Marie, has already been confirmed but, speaking to The Sun, Meghan revealed she's hopeful of a future return to the program.

"The Voice is my dream job. I did that spit-in-the-cup thing (DNA ancestry test) and it came out as pure British," she shared. "This is why I belong there. It was just everything to me. But I made friends with everyone and told them, "Make sure I have a home when I come back'. One day I would love to do it again."

Reflecting on the advice she'd give her replacement, the singer, who is promoting her festive LP A Very Trainor Christmas, added: "I love Anne-Marie. They could not have picked a better person for the job. She is the best.

"I messaged her on Instagram and said, "Thank you a million times for everything and for doing this. You are going to be so good at this. I am not worried at all'.

"I told her the guys were so nice, and to hit me up if she had any questions. She is so talented and can sing anything. Anne-Marie will be the best thing about the show."

The All About That Bass star added she has a short maternity leave, but confessed she'll probably "crawl back into work" with songwriting, so she can work from her home studio with the baby close by.
