Jessie J, who’s wowing viewers as a coach on BBC1’s new talent show The Voice, is crazy about Tinie Tempah.

Jessie has just returned from touring in Indonesia and Australia, but was speaking to Tinie regularly while she was away. 

A tour source says: They were chatting for hours every night. She’s totally changed.’
