The low-key singer has said the thing that worried her most about sitting in the judge's chair was if she'd ever need to take an urgent trip to the toilet.

"I did it because my 16-year-old suggested it. I don't really watch TV, so I had no idea what I was doing and he had to explain the show to me and the concept of the turning chair."

"All I was worried about was 'what if I've to go to the toilet; could I sit in a chair for that long?'"

The star has said she has bonded with Bressie and Kian Egan while working on the show.

"It's a good laugh. The hours are a bit long but when you're up there in the chair it's great fun."

"I'm a typical tom-boy, so of course I'm having the craic with the lads; they're great."

The Limerick singer says she wasted no time between shoots for The Voice, and she now has new tracks of her own ready to record.

"I find the whole TV or film thing very long and time-consuming. It's fun when you're doing it but there's a lot of waiting around."

"I've about 15 new track done and I'm probably going to head over to Los Angeles this month and see what's on offer."
