The Voice UK's Jessie J snubs professional stylist for her own wardrobe

The Voice UK coach Jessie J has snubbed the BBC's offer of a professional stylist in favour of her own wardrobe.

According to The People, the singer turned down the chance to have her own personal stylist for the upcoming live show, which will be competing against Britain's Got Talent 2012 on Saturday nights.

“All celebrities on The Voice get access to personal stylists as part of their contract. But Jessie said, ‘No thanks, I’ll do it myself’. All the other judges accepted," a source told the newspaper today.

The insider added: “When Alesha was on Strictly, she was also offered a similar deal and accepted straightaway. A stylist helped every series.

“When The Voice starts, all eyes will be on Jessie to see how she compares with [Britain's Got Talent judges] Alesha and Amanda.

“But she’s not worried because she is a confident woman, and knows what suits her. She is known for her quirky, eccentric style and can win the battle of the fashionistas without professional help.”

Jessie is joined by Sir Tom Jones, and The Script’s Danny O’Donoghue on the BBC's £22 million reality TV gamble, hoping that the Dutch telly format will win over British viewers like it has in the States.

The source added: “The Voice producers know that when it comes to original, creative fashion, they have got the right girl for the job.

“Jessie isn’t interested in standing by while a stylist picks her clothes and tells her how to do her hair and make-up.

“I can guarantee you’ll ­never see her in a floor-length ball gown. She likes to do things her way. The only ­person Jessie needs is a hairdresser, to work on her purple dip-dyed ends.”

Both The Voice UK and Britain's Got Talent start on March 24 on BBC One and ITv1 respectively.
