Jones hoping Jessie J returns to 'The Voice'

Tom Jones has suggested he might return to The Voice only if Jessie J signs up for a further series.

He said it was still “up in the air” about whether the coaches would come back for another stint next year – and he said his involvement would be dependent on who else is on the panel.

Jones spoke as speculation mounts over whether the judges will opt to return after the audience took a sharp fall following a promising start.

Asked by Radio 2’s Steve Wright if he will come back, Jones said: “It’s still up in the air. It all depends on who does it.

“I get on well with Jessie J. If we do another one, I’d like her to be there for definite. And Will.i.am is doing a good job, and so is Daniel O’Donoghue.”

Speaking on the show this afternoon, he continued: “It would be nice if Jessie was there if I was going to sign again. Do I sign or don’t I sign?

“If Jessie’s there, it would make it a lot easier for me to want to do it again.”

Tomorrow’s edition of the show sees Jessie and O’Donoghue’s teams competing to continue in the contest. Both coaches will lose a pair of acts this weekend.
