The Voice UK's Leah McFall misses Top 40 but Bars and Melody hit Top 5

Leah McFall Voice 2013

The Voice UK's Leah McFall has missed the Top 40 with her debut single Home.

The pretty amazing track - arguably and perhaps ironically let down by coach Will.i.am's appearance - charted at Number 56 in today's chart.

It's a sure disappoint for the show with Leah the most promising artist to have come from the three series to have aired so far.

But she had little support from radio with even the BBC snubbing the song.

Leah, who releases her debut album Weird to Wonderful later this year, previously hit the Top 10 with her cover of I Will Survive on the show last year.

Meanwhile, Britain's Got Talent finalists Bars and Melody have made it into the Top 5 with their cover of Hopeful, which they auditioned with on the show.

The teenage pair - made up of 13-year-old Leondre Devries and 15-year-old Charlie Lenehan - finished in third place on this year's show back in June and this evening score their first top 40 hit.

Their cover of Twista and Faith Evans' song is Britain’s biggest selling physical single this week and managed to out perform the original track which peaked at Number 25 back in 2005.

Thousands of BAM fans had attended signings across the UK to meet the pair, with Police having to be called at an event in Manchester after thousands turned up.
