Leah McFall has emerged as the favourite to win the second season of The Voice UK, and even Cheryl Cole is on board with supporting the talented singer.

Leah was seen on last night's edition of the BBC show being given a fast-pass to the live shows without having to compete with her team-mates.

When she took to the stage to prove why she was worthy of the shortcut, Cheryl wrote on Twitter: "Is it weird that I just clapped on my own at the tv to Leah ? #thevoice"

Leah responded: "aw thank you so much Cheryl!!! Xx"

Rochelle Humes of The Saturdays and the big-voiced Natasha Hamilton of Atomic Kitten also sang Leah's praises online, with the former saying "Leah #thevoice wooowww that was amazing x" and the latter gushing: "Leah #TeamWill just blew me away! That girl has got IT! gonna go far & love that Minnie Ripperton song, Check out Inside My Love by her x"

Leah is now the 4/1 favourite to win the show with William Hill, ahead of Karl Michael on 5/1, Ash Morgan and Matt Henry on 7/1 and Joseph Apostol on 9/1.

But despite her being on Team Will, it's Jessie J who is the favourite coach to come out victorious. She is on 9/4, while will.i.am is on 5/2, Danny O'Donoghue 11/4 and last year's winner Sir Tom Jones is the 3/1 outsider.
