Country singer Talia Smith is one the latest acts to impress The Voice 2014 coaches on this weekend's show.

The 'gypsy' singer had originally been due to perform as part of a duo but her singing partner pulled out just before their audition.

Talia and pal Kelly Lee had enjoyed some success as Travellin Rose even travelling to America to win over fans.

Now Talia is going it alone and hoping to get The Voice judges turning their chairs for her.

According to The Sun newspaper Sir Tom Jones is particularly taken by the performer, who juggles singing with looking after three kids.

“Talia is a bona fide traveller. She loves the life and doesn’t care what anyone thinks about gypsies," a source said today. “She’s been a professional singer for a few years and has a great voice. It’s no surprise coach Tom Jones takes a bit of a fancy to her."

The insider added to the tabloid: “She’s genuine proof that the show is about including people from all walks of life.

“People focus on the former pop stars and the confident stage school types but there are so many different people on the show.”

Talia herself revealed that she only started singing after having her third baby but had plenty of encouragement from friends and family.

“I’ve a lot to thank the gypsy community for as I pretty much lost all my friends when I moved in with Billy when I was just 16," Talia said. "They made me welcome and have encouraged me to sing.”

The Voice UK continues next weekend on BBC One with the latest blind auditions show.
