The Voice 2012 Leanne Mitchell insists she's not a flop

Leanne Mitchell

The Voice 2012 Leanne Mitchell has hit out at reports claiming she's been left to sing at birthday parties.

The former holiday resort entertainer triumphed on last year's series with her powerful performances, but has since been rather quiet.

Leanne's winner's single (of sorts) failed to crack the Top 40 and her album has been continually pushed back, now scheduled for release on May.

The Sun reported last week that Leanne had been making a living from entertaining at parties, quoting Leanne as saying: "I’ve done a couple of birthday parties since The Voice.

"I’ve no big performances planned at present.”

However Leanne blasted the claims on Twitter over the weekend, writing online: "Ok, just to clear things up... I haven't actually sang at ANY 'birthday parties'..?! I haven't been out 'gigging' as I wanted to 100% focus on writing my album.

"However, I did perform in front of Prince Harry last year, does that count as a 'birthday party'??"

She added: "I am not going to keep defending myself on what people think I should've done the past year, I have had an amazing year and worked with some amazing people, and will happily be judged on my album out May 27th."

Nice plug, Leanne.
