The Voice UK winner Andrea Begley cracks Top 40 with winner's single

Andrea Begley (The Voice UK)

The Voice UK winner Andrea Begley has charted in the Top 30 officially with her winner's single.

It's 15 spots higher than last year's champ Leanne Mitchell managed, but hardly a hit single.

The track had been in the charts at Number 16 in the middle of the week, but sales tailed off to see the track chart officially at Number 30 yesterday evening.

Runner up Leah McFall was right behind, although it was her cover from the first live show - I Will Survive - that was still in the charts, down 16 places on its third week in the chart to Number 31.

They were the only two songs from The Voice artists to crack the Top 40 officially this week, despite there being four tracks in total in the earlier midweek sales flashes.

Outside the Top 40 and Leah was at 43 and 50 with her covers of I Will Always Love You and Killing Me Softly respectively, while Andrea had a second entry at 98 with her take on Ho Hey from Week 1.

But there was no sign of their fellow finalists Matt Henry and Mike Ward, with neither making a dent in the Top 100 of the official chart this week with any of their songs from the show.

Speaking earlier this week, Leah described her success on the charts - with I Will Survive now having sold over 100,000 copies - as a "beautiful surprise.

She said: "You just don't ever imagine getting through to the final and definitely not charting. I didn't even know we were releasing songs! It was a beautiful surprise!"

The Voice UK will return to BBC One next Spring.
