The Voice UK star Tyler James has reportedly been left upset after being asked to sing an Amy Winehouse song for the final.

Reveal magazine claim that Tyler, Will.i.am's last remaining finalist, has refused to perform one of Amy's tracks on Saturday night.

No secret has been made about Tyler's close relationship with the late singer, but it seems even he's getting fed up of all the references.

A source told the magazine: "Tyler was really upset about it.

"He doesn't want the continued 'Oh, he's Amy's mate' references, and doesn't want to sing one of her songs."

The supposed insider added: "It's less than a year since she died, so it's still very raw for him an id it's too much of him to cope with."

Speaking about Amy recently, Tyler said: "She's my best friend. She's the most amazing person I've ever known and when you use someone like that, they're with you forever."

The Voice UK final airs this Saturday night on BBC One.
