Jessica Hammond (The Voice UK)

Northern Irish singer Jessica Hammond remains the favourite to win The Voice UK this year, after joining Team Jessie in the first blind audition show.

We're now half way though the audition process, and with the teams quickly filling up, it's all very close in the betting.

After impressing all four of the coaches with her take on Jessie J's Price Tag, Jessica remains the 9/1 favourite.

However Five Star singer Denise Pearson is close behind at 10/1 after wowing at the weekend.

"Everybody who made it through was of a very high standard and it looks like we are in for a fantastic series” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Another batch of singers will be singing for the coaches this Saturday night, but will any of them have The Voice to challenge Jessica?

Amongst the hopefuls set to appear on Saturday night are former X Factor hopefuls Joelle Moses and Ruth Ann St Luce, 'Aristocrat singer' Bo Bruce and Indie performer Denise Morgan.
