“I don’t want to be this person who is an artist, and then you don’t really know who she is, is she nice, so I just be as honest as possible, and I do have that relationship with them [her fans] it’s like they are my friends.”

Anne-Marie announced she would be joining the judging panel on The Voice UK back in December.

In a video to her Instagram, she said: “Everyone has dreamed of sitting in that chair.

“I’m really excited to be a coach. I’m hoping to find a powerhouse!

“I might be the only girl, but I’m going to keep those boys in line.”

Anne-Marie has since spoken of how she will be an “honest” judge on the show.

She explained on BBC Radio 5 Live: “I am going to be really honest, but I’m going to be making sure they are alright too.

“I mean, in this industry, you do get mugged off quite a lot.

“I did say this to the crew, if I was to do it, I want to be majorly involved in the mental health side of things and be involved in the contestants, that whole part of it.”

The Voice UK will air tonight on ITV at 8.30pm.
