The Voice UK's Leo Ihenacho 'was never a member of The Streets'

Leo Ihenacho (The Voice UK)

The Voice 2014 contestant Leo Ihenacho has never a member of The Streets, it's been claimed.

On Saturday night we saw Leo close the show with his blind audition, getting Kylie Minogue all in a fluster with his cover of a Simply Red track.

In his VT, Leo spoke of singing with The Streets, something which impressed Kylie's fellow coach Will.i.am.

But leader of The Streets Mike Skinner has hit out at Leo, saying that the former Celebrity Love Island star was only "a session singer."

The Daily Mirror quotes Skinner as saying: “Leo the lion wasn’t in The Streets.

"He was a session singer on a few tracks. He also sang on tour for a bit.”

However Leo was quick to hit back at the claims, replying: “You are a total disgrace! How f***ing dare you...!!??”

Member or not, there's no doubting that Kylie did well in choosing the talented singer for her team.

The Voice UK airs Saturday nights on BBC One.
