The Voice UK and X Factor acts in midweek chart battle

Leanne Mitchell (The Voice UK)

Acts from both The X Factor and The Voice UK have found themselves battling for positions in the charts this week.

Despite the summer being a rather slow time for music, two acts from The Voice UK and The X Factor are hoping for impressive debuts come the official Top 40 on Sunday.

In the albums, there's poor news for Alexandra Burke, who is stalling at 14 with her new record Heartbreak On Hold.

It's the second album from the former X Factor winner, and the first to be released since leaving Simon Cowell's Syco label last year.

And in a surprise twist, the album is battling for a spot in the Top 20 with The Voice UK runner up Bo Bruce.

Her EP Search The Night is currently at number 19, despite having been recorded and released before she stepped foot on the show.

Over in the singles and Voice winner Leanne Mitchell is currently at number 27 with her debut single, a cover of Whitney Houston's Run To Me. The 27-year-old has signed to Universal's Island Records label after becoming a surprise winner during last weekend's final.

Leanne is just three spots ahead of Aiden Grimshaw's debut effort Is This Love, at 30.

The track is the first to be taken from the X Factor star's debut album, which is set for release later this summer some two years after he competed on the show.
