Leanne Mitchell is victorious on 'The Voice'

Sunday June 3, 2012

Leanne Mitchell has spoken of her astonishment after winning The Voice, saying she "never saw it coming".

Leanne, mentored by Sir Tom Jones, appeared stunned after the result of the public vote was announced during the final of the BBC singing competition.

The former holiday camp singer later said she could not believe what she was hearing.

She said: "I thought, did they just say my name? It is such a weird feeling, you can't really put it into words. It's just, 'oh my God, what's happening?'"

Mitchell, who won a recording contract following her triumph, beat fellow contestants Tyler James, mentored by Will.i.am, and Bo Bruce, who was guided through the show by Danny O'Donoghue.

Vince Kidd, coached by Jessie J, was eliminated earlier in the programme.
