The Voice UK has found itself under fire for 'stealing' a cover of Iggy Azalea's Fancy.

At the weekend we saw Mitch Miller sing a Swing version of the track which has been accused of being a 'note-for-note copy' of group Postmodern Jukebox's arrangement.

The band wrote on Facebook after Saturday night's auditions: "Last night, BBC The Voice UKplayed a note-for-note copy of our 1920's arrangement of Iggy Azalea's 'Fancy' (ft. the multitalented Ash Stroud on vocals & tap dance) without permission and without giving us any credit.

"It's disappointing to have your work stolen, but I'd rather turn this situation into something more positive. So, this month, I'll be giving all profits from the sale of OUR version of 'Fancy' to Save the Children UK."

Mitch responded to the post, writing online: "I only WISH I could create a version as good as this!!!!

"I'm telling as many people as possible of Postmodern Jukebox and their INCREDIBLE work!! I NEVER intended to steal any work or pass of as mine.

"I was just honoured to be able to sing such a great version! I tell EVERYONE how much of a fan I am! and will keep on doing so!"

Mitch later added: "THANK YOU! and Massive Thank you to Postmodern Jukebox for creating an incredible version of 'Fancy' I'm a HUGE fan and it was an incredible experience to perform it on The Voice!

"Ive been sharing your covers for So long and now performing one on TV is just incredible! I'm hoping it makes more people aware of how incredible you guys are!!! hopefully see you soon!!! x"
