The Voice UK: Kylie Minogue 'feared' "weird" Leo Ihenacho

Leo Ihenacho (The Voice UK)

Kylie Minogue reportedly ditched Leo Ihenacho from The Voice 2014 over fears he was becoming obsessed with her.

We saw former singer of The Streets Leo make no secret of his crush on Kylie on the show after wowing her in his first audition.

Leo made it all the way through to the Knockout stages when his flirting with Kylie continued to intensify.

And it was hardly one way, with Kylie herself more than teasing the budding performer.

However it was a romance that never blossomed after Kylie ditched Leo ahead of the live stages, rather controversially.

According to the Daily Star newspaper today (so, you know, probably totally bollocks), Kylie kicked Leo off the show not because of his Voice but rather she feared he was becoming obsessed.

The Aussie popstar was even forced to admit: “I didn’t dump Leo – I was never going out with him.

“I’m sure Leo will be flirting with everyone else now.”

Speaking to the tabloid, a supposed show source added: “Kylie is hoping that’s the last she sees of him. It was getting a bit weird.”

Ricky Wilson added to the paper: "Leo knew what he was doing to get column inches.”

Frankly we feel that the coaches seem to have taken Leo a bit too seriously.

In an hilarious clip posted after his exit, Leo himself mocked his 'obsession' with Kylie, showing off his ‘shrine’ to the singer with albums and posters on his wall.

He sobs: “I built a shrine for f**ks sake. I even showed you the lion lunge.”

He adds: ‘“I made you a t-shirt Kylie. It cost me 20 f**king quid.”

And Leo jokes: “Get it off me! It’s itching me with betrayal.”
