Jamelia, who is a coach on 'The Voice of Ireland', admits she "wouldn't say no" to replacing Jessie J on 'The Voice' UK

Jamelia "wouldn't say no" to replacing Jessie J on 'The Voice'.

The 'Superstar' singer is currently one of the coaches on the Irish version of the hit singing show - sitting on the panel alongside Kian Egan, Sharon Corr and Bressie - and would love to make the leap to the BBC edition when it returns for a third season in 2014.

She told Digital Spy: "Oh gosh. It's definitely not something I'd say no to. Being a musician is what I love to do but I love working on TV; I love the experience and I wouldn't say no - I definitely wouldn't say no to 'The Voice'."

BBC bosses are looking to replace 'Wild' singer Jessie J, who announced she has quit the show after two years to concentrate on her music career.

She wrote in a statement on her Twitter account: "I've absolutely loved my time on 'The Voice', and I hope everyone saw and knows how passionately I felt about the show.

"I can't wait to promote my new record around the world and that has to take priority. I shall be keeping a very close eye on series three, showing my support in every way I can, and really hope that in some way that I can be part of the show."

It's not yet known whether the other three coaches - will.i.am, Danny O'Donoghue and Tom Jones - will return for the new series.

The 2013 series was won by Danny's act Andrea Begley, after she beat favourite Leah McFall in the final.
