Jessie J has confirmed that she will be returning as a coach on the BBC talent show The Voice.

The singer tweeted: "The Voice UK Series 2... Are you ready?! I AM ;)"

Since the show ended earlier this year, there have been rumours that Jessie J would not be rejoining the panel.

However her second tweet made it clear she would be part of the second series.

"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!"

The first series of The Voice went head to head in the ratings with ITV's talent show Britain's Got Talent.

Initial stages of the programme featured mentors Jessie J, will.i.am, Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue in chairs facing away from the performers.

If they decided they wanted to represent the contestant, they span their chair round to face them.

While these stages attracted large audiences, ratings started to dip towards the end of the competition.

Jessie J is the first coach to reveal that she will be back for the series two of the programme.

It is still unconfirmed whether the other three original mentors will return.

The second series is due to return to the BBC in 2013.
