"Her hard work, her dedication, and how she deals with having the world stare at her every move, personally and professionally, with such dignity and strength, is inspiring," she told Glamour.

Jessie J also spoke of her "shock" at her highly successful couple of years, which have included several big hits from her debut album Who You Are.

"There have been so many professional highlights. But headlining at the O2 in London and being the first UK female to have had six Top 10 singles from one album has to be up there. I was so shocked when I was told that."

The singer also praised her fellow Voice UK coach will.i.am after their time together on the BBC One show.

"He's someone who has taught me so much in a short space of time," she explained. "He has great energy and has made me see you can have longevity and consistency, but it comes with hard work and passion."

Jessie J and will.i.am are reportedly facing the axe from The Voice UK for series two along with Sir Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue.
