Lydia Lucy to LEAVE The Voice UK? Singer is unwell ahead of final

The Voice - Episode 12

With a day to go before the final of The Voice UK there are fears we could see another shock exit.

This year's live shows have been a bit cursed so far with two acts having to leave before even the first performances.

Beth Morris and Chloe Castro were both ruled out with just hours to go at the Quarter Finals last month.

Now Lydia Lucy has sparked worries that she too may end up having to withdraw.

On her Twitter account earlier today (Friday), Lucy tweeted fans to say she would be missing a planned performance later this evening due to illness.

She wrote: "I'm so so sorry but due to me not being well I won't be at G-A-Y tonight, I need to rest for tomoro final - so sad about this [sic]."

The club's account replied: "Get Well soon, everyone understands, priority is the final tomorrow & hopefully when you do G-A-Y its as @BBCTheVoiceUK Winner."

A source revealed that Lydia is currently unwell due to a virus but it's hoped she'll recover in time for the live final tomorrow night.

The insider told OK! Magazine: "Lydia is unable to perform at G-A-Y tonight due to her being unwell. It's not her voice but she's caught some sort of virus.

"We're just hoping she will be well enough to perform in the final tomorrow night."

Another source told the Daily Star newspaper that Lydia's future on the show was currently "up in the air".

"Lydia has been really unwell and doctors have told her she has to rest," they explained. "Tomorrow is the biggest night of her life and she is determined to make it to the stage, but right now it is up in the air.

"She has worked so hard to make it to the final, if she can't perform it would be devastating for her."

Alongside Lydia, those competing in the final are Team Ricky's Jolan and Kevin Simm and Team George's Cody Frost.

All things going to plan, they will all be performing LIVE tomorrow night on BBC One from 7PM.
