The Voice 2013 winner Andrea Begley backs Sally and Christina Marie to win

Andrea Begley Voice 2013

Last year's winner of The Voice UK Andrea Begley has revealed Sally Barker and Christina Marie are her favourites.

Belfast singer Andrea was the surprise champion of last year's show, beating Leah McFall in the final.

Asked how this year's four remaining contestants will be feeling, she said yesterday: "Wrecked with nerves, quite tired too with so many rehearsals but a lot of excitement and anticipation for tomorrow night.

"In some ways I envy them but in others I don't at all!"

Reflecting on her own time in the final this time last year, Andrea went on: "I was delighted to just be in the final four and going out in and there doing the best.

"If you put in your best then it'sout of your hands and that's what the guys have to remember tomorrow night."

As for her favourite, Andrea said: "It's very hand to tell. Every one is good in their own way but I do have a soft spot for both Sally and Christina Marie."

Andrea, who was mentored by Danny O'Donoghue on the series last summer, went on to release her debut album in October. Called The Message it featured a combination of covers and self-penned songs from the Northern Irish singer.

The record did a lot better on the charts than Series One winner Leanne Mitchell managed, with the album making the Top 10.
