Anne-Marie has said she was “nervous” about joining The Voice UK.

The singer was announced as a coach on the singing competition last year, replacing Meghan Trainor.

She told Apple Music she was apprehensive about joining the ITV programme.

“It was kind of scary going into it, because I’m not really that good at being around strangers so it’s not really the best,” she said.

“I don’t know, I was just nervous. But as soon as I went there, and met [fellow judges] Will.i.am and Tom Jones and Olly [Murs] I was just comfortable straight away.”

She said it is “weird to think that I am giving other people advice”.

“That’s why I’m a bit confused. But it’s been amazing, I didn’t actually realise how much I’ve learnt from this industry until I started this show.”

Anne-Marie added that appearing on the programme has ended up being “a lot of fun”.

The singer also told the station she has also taken up a new hobby of growing her own vegetables.

“To be honest I didn’t expect anything but I was happy whenever anything happened,” she said.

“I grew potatoes, strawberries, tomatoes and the only thing left is a lemon tree, everything else is dead.

“I ate it all, it was the best ever. I’m now obsessed, and I need to have a whole farm.”
