The Voice UK winner Leanne Mitchell has finally got around to releasing a single

Leanne with Sir Tom

The Voice UK winner Leanne Mitchell has finally revealed plans for her debut album.

Leanne won the first series of The Voice last year, having been coached by Sir Tom Jones.

The singer has been rather quiet after winning the first series last summer, but confirmed she had been "locked in a studio" working on her record.

We're assuming and hoping she wasn't to be taken literally with that remark.

Speaking at the NTAs last night, where The Voice UK lost out to Strictly in the Best Talent Category, Leanne revealed her new single was called If You Knew and written by herself.

Leanne's winner's single Run To You failed to break to the Top 40, but she put on the blame on BBC's rules and regulations.

The track was released without so much as a mention after the final of the series last June.

Leanne explained: "To be honest, I think because it's on the BBC I think it's very difficult to get as much exposure as maybe you would on other programmes.

"It hasn't bothered me, but the main thing I wanted to work on is my album. So hopefully people will get to hear that very soon."

The Voice UK will be returning to BBC One in the Spring for a second series.
