The Voice UK results: Sam Buttery eliminated from Team Tom

Sam Buttery

Sam Buttery has become the first Voice UK contestant to be eliminated from Team Tom in tonight's results show.

The fabulous performer was in the bottom two with Matt & Sueleen Fletcher after the public saved Leanne Mitchell, Ruth Brown and Adam Isaac.

It was down to coach Tom Jones to decide which of Sam or Matt & Sueleen to save.

"What I think is that Sam and Matt & Sueleen are great entertainers and it's very, very difficult because they are so different," Sir Tom said.

Making his choice, he added: "But I can only judge it on last nights' performance. And I think I'm going to take Matt & Sueleen."

Sam reflected on tonight by saying: "I just hope that people won't be losing me, this isn't the end for me.

"People won't be losing me hopefully on their screens at home. I've just loved working with Tom, he's just been amazing. Matt & Sueleen gave a great performance. I'm just lucky for the time that I've had, to grow on the show."

He added "I'm pretty gutted and it feels like my heart has been ripped out. But I'm still happy, a little bit. I've just learnt so much from him [Tom], he's been around in the music industry twice my lifetime."

Sir Tom replied: "I feel as sad about it as Sam, it was a hard decision. I only went on last night's performance, that's all I can really say."

The Voice UK continues next week on BBC One as Team Jessie and Team Danny's acts perform for the first time.
