Sparks fly between coaches Jessie J and Will.i.am as they squabble over contestants as The Voice returns this weekend.

During the first edition of the show, the pair are embroiled in a heated exchange after Jessie takes exception to the Black Eyed Peas star chipping in while she is trying to entice a hopeful to her team.

The BBC1 programme returns at 7pm tonight for the first round of auditions in which the coaches choose the wannabes they would like on their team.

But Jessie accuses Will of siding with fellow judge Danny O’Donoghue and claims that he is continually trying to stop the contestants from choosing her. In the show the coaches often have to go head-to-head to persuade the best entrants they should join their roster. At one stage, Jessie grumbles: “He never wants people to pick me.”

The dispute led to fellow panellist Sir Tom Jones wading in to sort out the argument after an audition was over.
