Tom Jones: 'The Voice UK will happen if it's the same panel'

By
Tom Jones has suggested that he will only return to The Voice UK if all four coaches from the first series are kept.

The first year of the contest featured Jones alongside The Script's Danny O'Donoghue, will.i.am and Jessie J.

"We're talking about it right now, "Jones told Absolute Radio at the Freddie For A Day fundraising evening at London's Savoy Hotel.

"We're trying to get it all sorted out, as long as the other coaches are there and we have the same team, then it looks like it will happen."

Asked if it was important to have an identical panel to this year's show, he added: "Exactly yes. It's got to be that, I think."

Jones and Jessie J were reported to be quitting the show, but Jessie J has already confirmed her return.

The Welsh singer previously said that he will only sign up for the show if he knows who will join him on the panel.

"I don't want to be sitting there with somebody that I don't admire or particularly like," he explained. "There are a few of them!"

BBC One controller Danny Cohen has said that he wants all the coaches from the first UK series to return.

It was recently confirmed by the BBC controller of entertainment Mark Linsey that the format of the show will be tweaked for its second series, with fewer live episodes and an increased role for the spinning chairs.
