Clara Hurtadio has spilled on working with Will.i.am on The Voice UK 2017.

20-year-old Clara from Brighton is originally from Spain and got all four coaches turning at her blind audition.

She chose to join Team Will and is now heading into the knock out rounds tonight, one song away from the live quarter-finals.

Speaking about being a part of Team Will, Clara revealed: "Every rehearsal and any bit of filming, he's always there with the team.

"I haven't had a one-on-one with him but he likes to get down to work. I said to him that I was taking it a step at a time and he said that's the best way to be in this situation."

She raved about the Black Eyed Peas star: "He's such a relaxed guy, so any advice is always so chilled."

Meanwhile, Clara revealed how she only ended up on the show thanks to a friend.

"Actually I got a call from someone I basically got scouted for it. She sent a recording of me to The Voice and they got back to her and they said did I want to audition So I said why not," Clara explained to OK! magazine.

Clara is one of six acts now left in Will's team and competing for three spots in the live finals alongside Hayley Eccles, Michelle John, Tanya Lacey, Jason Jones and Lia White.

The Voice UK 2017 airs this Saturday night at 8:30PM on ITV with Team Will and returns Sunday night at 7:45PM on ITV with Team Gavin.
