Producers of the BBC talent show The Voice fed comments to the coaches in the first series, Sir Tom Jones has admitted.

Speaking to the radio times, the Welsh pop legend said: "I feel like I know what I am doing this time and it feels more natural.

"Last year we were given suggested lines just in case we got stuck, which I tried to work in on a few occasions."

The crooner said the comments were not him, and made him feel self-conscious.

Sir Tom returns with fellow coaches Jessie J, Will.i.am, and Danny O'Donoghue for the second series of the show this weekend.
