Sir Tom puts faith in our girl Leanne

PUBLISHED: 16:18 18 May 2012

SINGER Leanne Mitchell’s dream of winning the hit BBC One show The Voice is still on course after she was sent into the semi-finals by singing legend Tom Jones.

The 28-year-old from Oulton Broad faced anxious moments on Saturday when it was revealed she did not have enough public votes to go through, but she was overjoyed when Sir Tom, her team leader, decided to save her instead of two other acts.

Now, she has to wait until next weekend to see if she can progress further as two other teams’ singers will be in action – and facing the axe – tomorrow and Sunday.

Leanne, who is also a voice coach at a theatre company based at Potters Leisure Resort in Hopton, was still a pupil at Benjamin Britten High School when she started performing at Potters at the age of 15.

Since then she has risen through the ranks, taking the stage at its annual shows and providing a guiding hand to aspiring singers.

Gorleston mum Toni Warne, who also performs at Potters, will find out whether or not she is through when she performs tomorrow.

●The Voice is on BBC One tomorrow (6.30pm) with the results show Sunday.
