BBC1 boss Dany Cohen said he would "love" all four celebrity coaches on The Voice to come back for a second series.





The channel controller, who commissioned the talent search, said the "constructive criticism" of Sir Tom Jones, Jessie J, Will.i.am and Danny O'Donoghue was "one of the great aspects of the show".



He told the Radio Times: "I'd love all our judges to come back. I love them all in multiple ways."



Last week, Sir Tom suggested he might return only if Jessie J signed up for a further series.



The show has lost viewers in recent weeks after a strong start but Mr Cohen said he did not "imagine mega-changes" being made to the format.



He said he admired ITV's Downton Abbey and I'm A Celebrity, but added he was "not sure we'd ever do something in that tone, although that's not to disparage it".
