The Voice UK: Jess Glynne feels her career is 'too young' to be a coach

Jess Glynne has revealed she feels her career is 'too young' to be a coach on The Voice UK when it moves to ITV.

The Hold My Hand hitmaker had been rumoured for a spot on the coaching line up next year.

Jess has now told how while there were unofficial "conversations" she didn't actually turn down the show.

"It's just that it came up in conversation but I'm not in a place when I'm ready to do that," Jess said.

She told the Daily Mail newspaper that "I would never say never 100%," and explained: "I just feel like right now I'm so early in my career and I feel like if I was to do something like that I'd need to give it my everything.

"I'd want to help people in their careers when they're starting that's not just those few hours when you're on TV. It's that other time outside the TV show when you're nurturing an artist and building them and helping them with their musical journey."

Jess, who this week announced her first headline UK arena tour for the autumn, continued: "Right now I don't have the time for that but at some point I will. But at the moment I've got things I'm working on, my album, my music.

"At some point maybe but right now not this time. I don't think I have enough experience to be sitting there and judging people - I'm too young in my career."

As yet no coaches have been confirmed for The Voice UK but ITV has announced that Emma Willis will be back to host.

The show will air on ITV from January.
