Becky Hill has opened about life post The Voice UK and confessed she originally found it tough after the show.

The AMAZING singer was a standout from the very first series and we're still annoyed to this day that she didn't make the final.

Despite that, Becky has arguably been the most successful act from The Voice with two top ten hits including a Number 1 song with music producer Oliver Heldens.

However Becky has spoken in a new interview this week about how she was originally left "close to depression" after the series finished.

"I can understand why after that sort of show you wouldn’t want to do music," the 22-year-old said. "I think with music reality TV shows, they either turn you on to music fearlessly, because if you’ve been on TV in front of 6 million people crying, it can’t go much worse.

"Or you can never want to look at music again.

"When I came off the show I was working behind a bar. It was difficult. I was close to depression at one point."

Becky told InStyle magazine: "At first I didn’t want to put my name on the Wilkinson track, I didn’t want people Googling my name and saying ‘who’s Becky Hill’ and finding out I was that girl on The Voice."

By the sounds of it, someone shock some sense into the singer for the beter.

"You have to change your mindset," Becky continued. "For ages, I hated that people would bring up The Voice, but I think someone actually had a go at me and put it into perspective – ‘if it weren’t for the voice, you wouldn’t be here, your life wouldn’t have changed, you would probably have gone down to some music school and got drunk for three years but you didn’t, you got yourself a career’."

Becky's new single Back To My Love is out now and she has an album on the way.

"It’s been written," she teased. "I’m stupidly proud of it, I’m glad I made an album I liked and not one I thought would sell."
