Bisexual pop star Jessie J will return to the second series of The Voice UK.

Bisexual British pop star Jessie J has confirmed she will return for a second series of The Voice UK.

The ‘Price Tag’ singer’s stint as coach was in doubt on the BBC reality competition show after tabloid reports claimed she would not return.

However the 24-year-old took to Twitter to blast the false reports.

She said: ‘I WILL be a coach on the 2nd series of The Voice UK! I'm B B B BACK!

‘As I have always said. Unless you hear it from me- Don't always believe what you read! Can't wait! #thevoiceuk #weback *fist to the sky* ;)’

It is unconfirmed whether her fellow coaches Welsh music legend Tom Jones, Black Eyed Peas rapper and producer Will.i.Am, and The Script frontman Danny O’Donoghue will also be back.

As it was assumed Jessie J and Jones would not return, other British pop stars such as Annie Lennox, Sir Cliff Richard, and Lulu were rumored to take over.

The first series, while moderately successful in the ratings, was blasted for not producing a superstar.

Last year’s winner Leanne Mitchell released a cover of Whitney Houston’s ‘Run To You’ which ‘stormed’ to a peak of 45 on the UK chart.

The Voice UK will return to BBC1 in spring 2013.
