What does the winner of The Voice get?

1 month ago 19

The final of the Voice UK is almost here and it’s nearly time to crown our 2021 winner.

Olly Murs, Tom Jones, Will.i.am and Anne-Marie’s acts will go up against each other in their bids to impress the Great British public.

On Team Will is Okulaja, while Grace Holden is on Team Olly.

Craig Eddie is part of Team Anne-Marie, and Hannah Williams is competing on Team Tom.

While Olly is the reigning champ among the coaches, after his act, 18-year-old  Blessing Chitapa, won last year (and he’s promised some craziness if his act wins again), it’s all to play for.

What does the winner of The Voice UK get?

The winner of The Voice gets a record deal with Polydor Records alongside the release of their debut single.

While there used to be a cash prize of £100,000, this was stopped when the show moved from BBC to ITV in 2017.

Who are the previous winners of The Voice UK?

The Voice UK started in 2012 on the BBC, with the first ever winner being Leanne Mitchell, who was on team Tom.

Andrea Begley won the second series, beating the favourite to win, Leah Fall. She was on Danny O’Donoghue’s team.

Series three saw Jermain Jackman win as part of team Will, while Stevie McCrorie, who was on Ricky Wilson’s team, won series four.

Former Liberty X star Kevin Simm won the fifth series, after being chosen for Paloma Faith’s team.

Series six, the first to be broadcast on ITV, saw Mo Jamil win as Jennifer Hudson’s act, while Ruti Olajugbagbe won in series seven as part of Tom’s team.

Series eight was where Olly’s winning streak began, with his act Molly Hocking winning, and then Blessing going on to secure the win in series nine.

The Voice returns tonight at 8:30pm on ITV.
