The Voice, BBC OneJessie J will not be part of the third series of The Voice UK, she has announced.

The 25-year-old revealed via social media that she had decided not to return to the series after two years as a judge and coach on the BBC One show.

The singer told fans on Twitter that she is departing the television talent search – where acts are heard only and not seen in the early rounds – to concentrate on promoting her latest album release and world tour.

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. – Jessie J on Twitter.

The BBC is yet to comment on who will replace Jessie J or whether fellow judges Tom Jones, Danny O’Donoghue and Will.i.am will be back for the shows third outing in 2014.

We’re so sorry to see Jessie go as she’s been an exceptional coach on – and advocate for – The Voice, but we totally support her decision to leave due to touring commitments overseas. We very much hope that Jessie will remain part of the show and come back and perform for us next series.  – Mark Linsey, BBC controller of entertainment commissioning told BBC News.
