Virgin Holidays investigating whether Voice UK 'V Room' represents a copyright infringement
Virgin Holidays is currently exploring whether the use of the term in The Voice represents a copyright infringement.
In a statement released this morning Virgin say they are aware of the term the ‘V Room’ which is used on The Voice UK as a waiting area for contestants before performing live on the show.
A spokesperson told ATV Today that they have not spoken to the BBC about the ‘issue’ yet and are still seeking legal advice on the matter.

The first Voice UK live shows kicked-off last weekend, in which Sam Buttery and Sophie Griffin became the first acts to be eliminated by their coaches Tom Jones and Will.i.am respectively.
