Jessie J to return to 'The Voice' after talks

Jessie J will return to the next series of 'The Voice' after holding clear-the-air talks with her boss.

The 'Domino' singer's job as a coach was said to be on the line after she allegedly snubbed BBC One controller Danny Cohen, while staff on the talent show were also growing tired of her diva-like behaviour.

However, Jessie, 24, and Danny held talks and he is now keen for her to sign a new contract.

A senior BBC source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "It was a positive and frank discussion that ended on very good terms. There was clearly a misunderstanding before when they were supposed to meet.

"But that is now water under the bridge. He hasn't got a problem with Jessie and wants to keep working with her."

It had been claimed Jessie refused to speak to Danny when he came to her dressing room after one of the live shows, but it has now been revealed she was asleep at the time.

Also, Danny is pleased that Jessie - who is joined on the coaching panel by will.i.am, Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue - speaks her mind as he thinks it makes for better TV.

He said: "I wasn't interested in hiring wallflowers. I wanted stars who fight passionately for their teams. I'm glad they speak their minds."
