Bressie's just my type says new voice star Jamelia

RTE's new Voice of Ireland judge Jamelia is singing the praises of her co-star Bressie and has described the hunk as definitely her type of man.

As Brian Kennedy's replacement on the talent programme, Jamelia started filming in the Helix for the second series of the hit show this week.

Since then, she has spent most of her time getting to know her fellow coaches Kian Egan, Sharon Corr and Niall Breslin.

And the single star (31), who's mum to Tiani (7) and Teja (11), has admitted Mullingar hunk Bressie won her over after working his charm on her two children.

"The Irish accent does it for me, I'm not going to lie. I just think he's such an adorable guy and the first day, he won over my girls. He bought them Ireland rugby jerseys and I just thought that was so sweet," she said.

But Jamelia (right) said she won't give into her desires and ask the former rugby player out.

"I am single but I'm not going to go for it. Honestly, I don't mix business with pleasure."

The R'n'B star added: "He's gorgeous, he's lovely and definitely warrants the title of Ireland's most eligible bachelor."

However, she revealed she and Bressie had clashed on the set of the show during the blind auditions section.

"I have been fighting mostly with Bressie... we had a big one the other day, but I'm sure it made for good telly."
