Tom Jones wants to return to 'The Voice' and veto fellow coaches

Tom Jones has revealed that he will return to The Voice - but only if he has veto over the show's other coaches.

Jones appeared on the panel of the BBC1 talent show alongside Jessie J, will.i.am and The Script's Danny Donoghue and coached his act Leanne Mitchell to victory. The show's audience peaked at an impressive 12.1 million viewers in week four, but had plunged to just 5.1 million viewers by week 10. A planned arena tour featuring contestants from the series has since been cancelled.

However, in an interview with The Sun, Jones insisted that he is not ready to turn his back on The Voice - which is known for its blind auditions and infamous spinning chairs. He said: "I think I will do another series. We are talking about it now. But there are a couple of things that need to be ironed out."

Discussing an important proviso in his renewal contract, Jones explained: "One of the things I said I need to know is who the other coaches are, because I don't want to be sitting their with somebody that I don't admire or particularly like... there are a few of them! Hopefully we will have the same four coaches!"

Worryingly for Jones, it has also been reported today (July 23) that Jessie J will not be returning to The Voice after announcing a UK tour to coincide with prospective filming dates. The Mirror quotes an insider as saying: "Jessie J is only young. I hope in a few years she looks back on the way she behaved during the show and cringes."

However, the accuracy of The Mirror's report is called into question by a claim in the same news item that Jones himself has also cut all ties with the show.
