Tom Jones hints at 'Voice' return: "It looks like I'm going to do it"

Sir Tom Jones has given the greatest indication yet that he is rejoining The Voice UK for a second series.

The Welsh singing legend, who most recently has been reported to be making an exit, had previously admitted that he would only sign up again if he liked the other coaches.

Speaking to NME at the V Festival, Jones claimed that Jessie J is considering a return, and suggested that will.i.am and Danny O'Donoghue are most likely to continue on the hit BBC One singing contest.

Jones is quoted as saying: "We're talking about it now. The BBC would like me to do another one and I did have a lot of fun doing the first one."

However, he acknowledged: "There are things that we need to change, things we know we can make better, but it looks like I'm going to do it. We haven't rubber-stamped it yet."

The star added: "Jessie J wants to know if I'm going to do it, I want to know if she's going to do it. I think will.i.am wants to do it and I think Danny O'Donoghue wants to do it. Hopefully the four of us will be the same, that's the key I think. We worked so well together, if you take one out, it's going to be like the missing piece of the puzzle."

O'Donoghue was quoted in July as confirming Jessie J's exit.

The Voice UK - the BBC's highest-launching entertainment show in a decade - attracted more viewers than Saturday's (August 18) X Factor opener, it was revealed yesterday.
