Kelsey-Beth Crossley has confessed to having a little crush on her mentor Ricky Wilson.

And frankly, who can blame her?

The former soap star impressed both Ricky and Kylie Minogue during her blind audition earlier this month leading to a bidding war between the pair.

Asked why she chose to join Team Ricky over Team Kylie, Kelsey-Beth said: “He seemed very enthusiastic. He seemed like he really wanted me on the team.”

She added to new! magazine this week: “I think he was [flirting] with everyone... of course [I fancy him] a little bit. I think the whole nation does at the moment."

Meanwhile, Kelsey-Beth opened about how weight jibes when she was appearing on ITV's Emmerdale as a child actor led her to lose almost three stone in weight.

The 21-year-old explained: “It was a rumour going round that I was pregnant. Everyone was saying, 'Is she pregnant?' And someone was like, 'No, she’s just fat.' I think it hurts for any woman who gets jibes about their weight.”

She revealed: “I was 13st, now I’m 10st. I decided to eat healthily and do more exercise.”

The Voice UK airs Saturday nights on BBC One.
