Jessie J: I'm back on The Voice

Jessie J has insisted that she will return for the second series of The Voice.
The Price Tag singer had said in her new book Nice To Meet You that she wouldn't reprise her judging role on the BBC talent show alongside Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Danny O'Donoghue, but has now decided otherwise.
"I am looking forward to hanging out with Will, Tom and Danny again - officially. I've said I'm doing it," she told Capital FM.
Jessie - whose real name is Jessica Cornish - previously confirmed her involvement, tweeting: "The Voice UK Series 2... Are you ready?! I AM ;)."
The 24-year-old revealed that scheduling conflicts were behind her decision in the memoir: "I have decided not to do the second series of The Voice UK, simply because I'm going to be too busy - that's the honest truth. I will be on tour, promoting my second album and trying to break the USA!"
But she told the radio station she had a change of heart: "Between my book being published and now, The Voice have very, very kindly been able to move some of the dates that I'm available because I really wanted to do it.
"We made it work and I always wanted to do it, so we made it work. I am going to be there, I never wanted to not do it. The only reason I couldn't do it was because of dates. They've now been organised, I am going to be there sitting in my chair bigging it up."
The second season of The Voice is expected to begin in spring 2013.
