The Voice UK 2018: Jamie Grey returns after getting no turns last year

Jamie Grey

Jamie Grey returned to The Voice UK 2018 tonight after originally getting no turns last year.

29-year-old musician Jamie Grey from Redcar had performed for the coaches last year, singing for Will.i.am, Sir Tom Jones, Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale.

But his cover of Never Ever didn't get any of the four piece spinning around, leaving him heading home.

Reflecting on his original blind audition, Jamie said in tonight's episode: "I feel I put a bit too much pressure on myself because I was so desperate to get a turn, it got the better of me a bit.

"When it ended and I didn't get a turn, I was upset."

You can watch Jamie's original blind audition on The Voice UK 2017 last year above.

Returning for a second shot tonight, Jamie this time got the turn he was after.

This year Olly Murs is on the panel, joined by returning coaches Will, Sir Tom and Jennifer.

Of course, the coaches had no idea it was Jamie back on stage.

As always in the blind auditions, the coaches had their backs to the stage so could only base their decision to pick an act on the voice.

For his second shot on The Voice, Jamie performed Andra Day's Rise Up.

Crediting his girlfriend with encouraging him to turn, Jamie got spins from both Olly and Tom this time. Jamie joined Team Olly.

Other acts on tonight's show included duo Belle Voci, made up of Sophie and Emily, who performed Delibes' Flower Duet together.

Burlesque and Cabaret performer Ivy Paige flirted up a storm with Olly Murs after singing Peggy Lee's Why Don't You Do Right while teacher Jade Williams and youth worker Jacob Simpson, both from London, each took to the stage.

Benn Helm from Liverpool and Lucy Milburn from Sheffield concluded the latest array of singers.

The Voice UK 2018 airs Saturday nights on ITV.
