Two contestants have dramatically quit The Voice just hours before the first of the live shows.
Beth Morris and Chloe Castro have both bowed out of the BBC One show today, with Beth citing ‘personal reasons’ and Chloe citing ‘health reasons’, with the first of the live shows due to broadcast from 7pm tonight.
A BBC spokesperson said: ‘Two contestants have left The Voice and will not appear on tonight’s edition or the remaining live shows. These departures are unrelated. Due to health reasons Chloe has withdrawn from the competition. We wish her all the best.’
Chloe, who was on Ricky Wilson’s team, then herself added: ‘I have decided to leave The Voice for health reasons. I have had a fantastic time and wish all the other contestants all the best in the competition.’
The BBC Spokesperson continued: ‘Due to personal reasons which have only just come to light, The Voice producers, the BBC and Beth have agreed that she should withdraw from The Voice.’
Beth added: ‘Being on The Voice has been the best experience of my life, the production team and contestants have all been incredible and I have loved performing on the show. Paloma has also been a great support.’
