Sir Tom Jones is reportedly considering joining The Voice UK's panel.

The multi-award-winning singer - whose entertainment career spans six decades - is in advanced talks to join the BBC One talent show, The Sun claims.

A source is quoted as saying: "Tom is close to committing. He has almost 50 years' experience in music, so he'll be able to give contestants decent advice.

"Jessie J will attract younger viewers but Tom's bound to be the housewives' favourite."

Jones began singing as a young child in school choirs and at family functions, and found international success with 'It's Not Unusual' in early 1965. His most recent album, the gospel-inspired Praise & Blame, entered the UK charts at number two in 2010.

Jessie J was confirmed as the first coach for The Voice UK earlier this month.

She said that she hopes the show's 'blind auditions' format - where contestants are initially judged on their singing voice alone - will encourage applicants who are usually discouraged by similar shows.
