Tensions ran high during the final round of the battles on The Voice UK, with viewers left distraught after Chantelle Padden left during Saturday’s show.

The first battle of the night saw Olly Murs’ contestants Chantelle and Grace Holden go up against each other to sing Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson for their place in the competition.

After a strong performance, called Chantelle ‘spectacular’, and added that Grace’s vocals were ‘beautiful and magical’.

It was then down to Olly to make his decision. After saying he was picking the contestant he felt he could ‘coach more’ and ‘get more out of’, he went for Grace.

Chantelle took the decision well, saying: ‘It didn’t go my way, but I’ve just got to keep going and do my best.’

However, viewers didn’t take the news so well.
