The Voice 2013: Jessie J is working Matt Henry hard!

Matt Henry (The Voice 2013)

The Voice 2013 star Matt Henry has said he's working even harder now he's on Team Jessie!

Matt was stolen by Jessie on the battle rounds on Saturday night, after losing his battle to Jordan Lee Davies.

His former coach Will.i.am admitted being tactical with his decision, purposely choosing Jordan so that Matt too would go through to the knockouts.

But Matt's not that upset about the switching of teams, saying: "Now I am being mentored by Jessie J, which is amazing and I can still speak to Will and we can have a level of conversation.

“Now Jessie is preparing us for the knockouts. I am going to have to work harder than ever before but it is going really well.”

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, Matt admitted he was perhaps better off to be away from Will.

“It is nice now it is less ‘Will’s lookalike’ and more me as myself. I will have my own identity," he said. “I’m so glad I had the experience with Will and a lot of other artists would not have had that experience with him. I learned a lot.”

Matt continued: “I feel like the new kid. Her team is so well established. I have come from a really hard team with Will to an even harder team with Jessie.

“The talent on her team is phenomenal. I do think it is a higher standard.

“I feel like I have gone from the frying pan into the fire – it has got hotter all of a sudden.”

The Voice UK continues next weekend on BBC One.
