He also revealed details of the bizarre encounter with the singer. 

"But later Tom threw a cup at me that cracked my tooth! So, I was like: 'Dang, that was kind of gangster'," he said.

Jessie J, Sir Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Danny O'Donoghue are all returning for the new edition of the show – which airs on Easter weekend.
