Britain's Got Talent favourite Alice Fredenham has slammed the BBC for 'making her look like a fraud on The Voice' and accused bosses of using her in a bid to bag more viewers in the Saturday night ratings battle.
28 year old Alice was accused of faking her nerves on ITV talent show Britain's Got Talent after viewers saw her audition on The Voice, which was filmed months earlier, but showed no trace of shyness.
Although the singer was sent packing by The Voice coaches, she's now keen to make her thoughts known about the whole thing.
And she told how despite her apparently confident performance, she had to be separated from her rivals backstage because she was so distressed.
Alice told The Sun: “I was upset when The Voice showed my blind audition because I did feel a bit like a pawn between two shows."

Adding, “I can see why people might think my nerves on Britain’s Got Talent were tactical and if I was watching as a viewer I might think that too. But I was completely honest in both auditions, and it’s a case of how you are portrayed — what happens in the editing suite is up to the show.”
She went on: “After The Voice aired lots of people said I’d totally changed and that I was a fake, which hurt."
“At The Voice I started to get distressed. One of the producers had to take me to one side to calm me down."
She continued, “I fell to pieces. I did freak out and wanted to clam up.”
After her failed audition, shaken Alice was told by Tom Jones she “looked better than she sounded”.
Her boyfriend Joe Lenzie then convinced her to enter BGT, where she overcame her nerves to win a standing ovation from judges. Simon Cowell compared her rendition of My Funny Valentine to “liquid gold”.
And tomorrow viewers will see the hopeful find out if she has made it through to live semi-finals next week.
Alice said: “At The Voice all the positive remarks were about my appearance, but on Britain’s Got Talent all the focus has been on my voice.”
