The Voice 2013: Cleo Higgins hits back at diva reports

Cleo Higgins (The Voice UK 20130

The Voice 2013 semi-finalist Cleo Higgins has hit back at reports claiming she's a diva backstage.

A show source told The Sun yesterday: “The rest of the contestants are all getting wound up because they don’t see how she is managing to get away with bossing everyone about.”

An insider also told the Daily Mirror that coach Will.i.am was “sick to death of dealing with her”.

But Cleo blasted the reports as "rubbish".

Admitting it was "hard" dealing with the negative press, Cleo said she was just hoping that The Voice would give her some exposure.

"I've been hiding away from the public eye for a long time. I was actually hoping to start off slow and start climbing my way up to a solo career, but then something needed to give," she said this week. "I just wanted to get my name out there a bit, and I thought The Voice was perfect for getting me out there as a performer."

Speaking to DigitalSpy, Cleo also revealed she would love to a Cleopatra reunion with her sisters

"We never got to say goodbye to our fans. The Spice Girls said goodbye. S Club said goodbye. Cleopatra just vanished," she told the website. "It's a strange situation because the public seemed to love the fact that I was from Cleopatra when I appeared on The Voice.

"It would be nice for the fans to do one album, one tour and add closure to that part of my life."
