Jessie J has opened up about her second series as a judge on The Voice UK, saying "I know that not everyone is going to like what I say or do".

"Last year I held back because I was aware that the public didn’t really know who I was. I’m less bothered this year by what people think," Jessie J tells the Radio Times ahead of the debut of series two of The Voice UK tonight.

"I actually feel a lot more at ease with the role and the show and more confident knowing that I have experience as a coach."

Speaking about her approach towards the next batch of hopefuls, the 25 year-old said "This show is about helping someone become an artist and that’s where my strength is... bringing people on, teaching them, not just singing, but how to conduct themselves, how to become aware of themselves".

"I do follow my instincts but it doesn’t mean I’m good at it" the singer confesses. "But on the show, I know that not everyone is going to like what I say or do, so I have to trust myself. It’s not easy."
