The Voice UK: Last year's finalists: Where are they now?

The Voice

The Voice 2017 UK live shows kick off at the weekend so we've cast a look back to see where last year's finalists have ended up.

If you've forgotten all about them, last year's series of The Voice UK was won by former Liberty X singer Kevin Simm.

He beat Jolan in the final showdown while Cody Frost and Lydia Lucy also made it through to the final.

But just where are last year's final four now?

Kevin Simm

Former Liberty X singer Kevin became the fifth winner of The Voice UK, topping the public vote in what was the final BBC series.

He released original song All You Good Friends following his win which made it to Number 24 in the charts back in April last year after selling 24,000 copies.

However the song did not feature on Kevin's new 10-track album Recover, which was released last October with new single Wildfire.

Neither the song nor the album made any impression on the chart, both missing the Official Top 40.

Jolan said after last year's final that being the runner up was the "perfect outcome".

“Kevin winning and me coming second was the perfect outcome really, it gives me the freedom now to do my own thing,” he explained. “I’ll be working towards a music career. I just want to write, record, release some music and perform it.”

And Jolan's done just that, releasing his own EP Parallel late last year - you can download it from iTunes here

Lydia Lucy was joint third place on The Voice UK in 2016.

During the show, mentor Will.i.am vowed to put on a gig with her and she did just that, with the pair performing at the Royal Albert Hall with the Black Eyed Peas.

Lydia and Will have continued to perform together, also appearing at the Capital FM Summertime Ball.

In August 2016, Lydia featured on song True Colours with former Big Brother housemate Cristian MJC.

Cody was joint third place on the show alongside Lydia.

Having been a favourite on the show, Cody's early exit in the final proved a surprise.

Since the end of the series, she's continued to gig and perform around the country.
