Tom: I have to approve Voice panel

Sir Tom Jones has revealed he would like to do another series of The Voice, but only if he approves of the rest of the judging panel.

The 72-year-old Welsh singer - who previously revealed he had only joined the panel of the BBC talent show after he knew all the other coaches were musicians and performers - said he would return for a second series, but he would prefer it if Jessie J, Danny O'Donoghue and all did too, reports The Sun.

Tom told Rob Brydon on his new chat show: "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.

"One of the things I said I need to know is who the other coaches are, because I don't want to be sitting there with somebody that I don't admire or particularly like... there are a few of them! Hopefully, we will have the same four coaches."

Tom's contestant Leanne Mitchell won the first series of the show, which saw viewing figures drop after the initial 'blind' audition rounds that separate The Voice from other talent shows.

And ticket sales for the live tour were so low that it had to be cancelled.

Tom revealed: "There are going to be changes made because they want to make the show the best it can be."
