Jessie J said: “I love kids, I love to sing and I love to share all I know about singing and performing.

“The idea of combining those three things again on The Voice Kids is a dream come true. I am grateful to have been asked back.”

She said of the young singers: “I will be protective of their experience emotionally, as well as vocally.”

McFly Jones said of Jessie J: “It’s going to be fun to see what kind of team she puts together … but I know mine will be better!”
