Jessie J does not face the axe from The Voice following frank discussions over the BBC show, it has been reported.

The Mirror reports the Price Tag star and boss Danny Cohen held talks – after she apparently refused him access to her dressing room recently.

Speculation was mounting that ALL four coaches on the show could be ditched for the next series of the singing contest.

It follows dropping ratings for The Voice against rival Britain’s Got Talent, which finished last weekend.

“It was a positive and frank discussion that ended on very good terms,” said a source at the BBC.

“There was clearly a misunderstanding before when they were supposed to meet. But that is now water under the bridge.

“He hasn’t got a problem with Jessie and wants to keep working with her.”
