The Voice UK star Jessie J has revealed she plans to be a less serious coach next year.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Jessie admitted that she feared her seriousness last series had come across as her just being grumpy.

She told the newspaper: “I think sometimes my seriousness got mistaken for grumpiness or rudeness.”

Jessie previously confirmed she would be back on the show, tweeting: “I WILL be a coach on the 2nd series of The Voice UK! I’m B B B BACK! As I have always said.”

Taking a swipe at the tabloid reports, Jessie added: “Unless you hear it from me- Don’t always believe what you read! Can’t wait! #thevoiceuk #weback *fist to the sky* ;)”

BBC One boss Danny Cohen previously said that he hoped Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Danny O’Donoghue would all return next year along with Jessie.

“We thought they made a very big impact for a first series and we want them all to come back,” he said last month. “We haven’t signed any contracts yet, so I can’t say anything official. But we said at the end of the first series that we wanted all of our coaches to come back.”

The Beeb chief also revealed plans for “dramatic changes” for series two, including less live shows and more audition rounds.

“Those live shows, the audience became over familiar with the grammar,” explained the channel controller. “It still works on Strictly and The X Factor, but audiences became over familiar with it.

“It’s not rocket science to say that the Blind Auditions were the best bit of the series.”

The Voice UK will return to BBC One in the new year.
