Chloe Castro has spoken out for the first time since leaving The Voice UK last night.

The Team Ricky Wilson singer had been a favourite but made a shock departure just hours before the first live show.

It was a real shame as Chloe had the potential do impress in the finals after some AMAZING pre-recorded performances in the battle rounds and knockouts.

"Due to health reasons Chloe has withdrawn from the competition. We wish her all the best," The Voice UK said.

Chloe added in a short statement at the time: “I have decided to leave The Voice for health reasons.

"I have had a fantastic time and wish all the other contestants all the best in the competition.”

Now taking to Twitter, Chloe seemed to be in high spirits despite the situation.

"I had to withdraw from #TheVoiceUK but I have had the most incredible experience I could ever ask for, I wouldn't change it for the world," she tweeted.

Chloe added to her followers: "Also... Watch this space as this is not the end of me!

"As soon as I can I will be ready and raring to go to upload some videos"

Chloe's premature exit was met by upset from a lot of viewers, with one writing on Twitter: "Really sad Chloe's not on the voice"

Another added: "Was looking forward to watching Chloe. Sad she's gone, hope she gets better. She has such a great voice!"

And a third showed their support: "so sad Chloe has left the voice she was so so good"

Chloe was one of two acts to leave before last night's live show with Beth Morris also withdrawing for very different, unrelated reasons.

The Voice UK live shows continue next Saturday night on BBC One.
