Sir Tom Jones has confirmed all four coaches on 'The Voice' will return for a second series as they are all set to sign new deals with the BBC One show
Sir Tom Jones has confirmed all four coaches on 'The Voice' will return for a second series.
The 'Not Unusual' hitmaker has revealed he and the rest of the panel - Jessie j, will.i.am and Danny O'Donoghue - are set sign up for the next series of the BBC One talent show as they have all enjoyed doing it so much.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I'm really loving it, it's been great fun. The BBC has already asked me to come back for the next series and I've said 'yes' - we have already begun discussions.
"They are on-going but I would very much like to do it again. They're happy with the judges as we are, and it looks like all of us will be back, even Will."
While he is enjoying working on 'The Voice', Tom, 71, admits he finds it hard sending people home from the competition.
He said: "The most difficult thing for me is to have to tell people to leave. I feel like my heart's been ripped out. It's started with the battles when I had to put people head to head and explain 'you can't all win'.
"And that's difficult because I know what it's like, and that's what the four coaches have in common - we are all performers, too, and weknow what it's like to get a knock-back. That's what we try to tell the contestants. You know, 'don't take it personally, it's not the end of your career, it is just you can't win this one, that's all'.
"Sometimes the public might not like my choices but we're there to help people - not shatter dreams but further careers."
