A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jessie had a massive meltdown and was crying over what she saw as women not wanting to work with her.
"She is very feisty and speaks her mind, but she fears that is putting girls off.
"Men seem to love working with her and she has had lots of success snaring male contestants but so far not much with the girls.
"She was asking backstage what she was doing wrong and is desperate to increase the number of women on her team."
Fellow judge Danny O'Donoghue has two girls in his three acts so far, and half of Sir Tom Jones' team are women. will.i.am, like Jessie, also has only one girl in his team so far.
Jessie said on last Saturday's (06.04.13) show: "I just want females to not be scared to work with me."
