X Factor's Jade Richards auditions for The Voice UK after bootcamp axe?

Jade Richards X Factor

Jade Richards has seemingly auditioned for The Voice UK after being booted out of The X Factor 2012.

The Scottish singer was controversially cut from last year's series at judges' houses, with Kelly Rowland deciding not to take Jade through to the live shows.

Undeterred, the Fife performer returned to The X Factor this year and once again wowed the panel to make bootcamp.

But this time the judges decided to axe Jade before she even got to judges' houses.

Not one to feel sorry for herself however, Jade has seemingly already moved on and hinted to her fans that she had auditioned for rial series The Voice UK.

She tweeted her followers yesterday: "Had an amazing day! #TheVoice"

So called 'pre-auditions' for the second series of The Voice UK are currently underway at venues across the country, with the blind auditions taking place next year.

Jessie J, Danny O'Donoghue, Will.i.am and Sir Tom Jones are all expected to return for the new series on BBC One.

This year's first series saw a number of X Factor 'rejects', including Sophie Griffin who was culled at bootcamp on last year's show.

The show's first ever winner Leanne Mitchell was also rejected from The X Factor, claiming that it was a "totally different" show to the new BBC series.

However the success of Leanne measures up pretty well to the success of the first series of The X Factor, with the former holiday resort entertainer yet to score a top 40 hit.

Her winner's song, a cover of Whitney Houston's Run To You, managed to reach only 45 on the charts, and her debut album has so far yet to be released.
