Voice UK star Jessica Hammond "overwhelmed" by support (even from Frankie Cocozza!)

The Voice UK - Jessica Hammond

The Voice star Jessica Hammond has said she's been left overwhelmed by the support for her since Saturday's show, although we're not really sure that palling up with Frankie Cocozza is such a good idea!

The former X Factor singer tweeted the Northern Irish beauty at the weekend after her blind audition on the new BBC one show as aired.

He said: “I’m in love with Jessica Hammond already.”

”I was amazed at the support I got,” Jessica told the Belfast Telegraph this week. “So many lovely messages from people including Frankie Cocozza and Eamonn Holmes."

All four of the coaches turned around for Jessica after her performance of Price Tag on Saturday night, and it was rather obvious who she was going to go for.

The 18-year-old explained: "I chose Jessie J because I can relate to her and I think we have chemistry, musically.”

“She is a very honest mentor, what you see on screen is what she's like off.

“She's very down-to-earth, funny and inspiring and bought all of us a lovely gift of Manuka honey, to help with our singing.”

The Voice UK continues with another set of blind auditions on Saturday night on BBC One.
