Jessie J holds the future of Sir Tom Jones on The Voice in her hands – the Welsh singer has revealed.

Sir Tom Jones has suggested he might return to The Voice- but only if she signs up for another series.

He said it was still “up in the air” about whether the coaches would come back for another stint next year - and he said his involvement would be dependent on who else is on the panel.

Speculation is rife that ALL judges on the show could be ditched because of a sharp dip in viewers.

“It’s still up in the air. It all depends on who does it, said Sir Tom.

“I get on well with Jessie J. If we do another one, I’d like her to be there for definite. And Will.i.am is doing a good job, and so is Daniel O’Donoghue.”

Speaking on the show this afternoon, he continued: “It would be nice if Jessie was there if I was going to sign again. Do I sign or don’t I sign?

“If Jessie’s there, it would make it a lot easier for me to want to do it again.”

Tomorrow’s edition of the show sees Jessie and O’Donoghue’s teams competing to continue in the contest. Both coaches will lose a pair of acts this weekend,” he told Radio 2 DJ Steve Wright.
