The Voice UK: Leo Ihenacho hopeful for Kylie Minogue date!

Leo Ihenacho (The Voice UK)

The Voice 2014 contestant Leo Ihenacho is still hoping to grab a dinner date with mentor Kylie Minogue.

On Saturday we saw Leo progress through to the Knockout stages on the Aussie singer's team of acts after rather a lot of flirting.

Leo confessed he was left rather distracted in rehearsals for his performance as Kylie got up on stage and danced with him in a glittering silver skirt.

But fortunately the former singer of The Streets managed to pull himself together for his performance in front of the popstar and other coaches.

Now Leo's looking forward to ask Kylie out but only once the series is finished with.

“We are still very flirty together but I want to wait until the show is over to ask her out so she’s not thinking about anyone else," he said.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Leo added: “There’s bound to be a come-down after the show and I want to be there to pick her up. When you start a romance you want to focus on it.”

But Steven Alexander, who lost out to Leo in the battles at the weekend before being stolen by Sir Tom Jones, wasn't sure of Leo's chances.

Asked whether her thought there was the potential for any relationship to form, Steven told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I don’t think so.”

For now The Voice UK continues next weekend on BBC One with the latest battle rounds.
