The Voice UK winners: Where are they now?

Who won The Voice UK last year?

Leanne with Sir Tom

As The Voice UK prepares to crown its fourth winner we take a look back at the past three winners and ask: Where are they now?

Leanne Mitchell

The Voice UK winner 2012

Leanne won the first ever series of The Voice UK back in 2012 but was dropped after her album off the back of the show reached 134 in the charts and sold just 895 copies.

Leanne ended up taking to Twitter to claim she was being made a "scapegoat" for the record's failure.

"Ever get the feeling you’ve been used as the scapegoat? I have had to read and listen to so much about me recently, and so far have kept quiet," Leanne wrote at the time. "I’d written and finished the majority of my album by the end of last summer, around September time… I don’t know why it was decided to wait so long to release it, but unfortunately, being very new to all this and probably too naive, I had to trust the people around me in making the right decisions.”

It was reported last year that Leanne had returned to singing in Holiday Parks.

Andrea Begley Voice 2013

The Voice UK winner 2013

Team Danny singer Andrea Begley (controversially) beat Leah McFall in last year's final to win the series.

Andrea, who was mentored by Danny O'Donoghue, 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 making the top 10.

She's still signed (apparently) although a potential second album looks rather unlikely.

The Voice

Jermain Jackman

The Voice UK winner 2014

The Voice 2014 winner Jermain Jackman has been hard at work on his debut album since winning the show last year.

His self-titled record of original tracks, co-written by Jermain himself, just missed out on the Top 40 when it was released last week, instead charting at Number 42, selling just under 2,500 copies.

Last year, Jermain’s winner’s single charted at Number 75 and sold just over 3,000 copies.
