The Voice UK’s Leanne Mitchell Returns To Old Job After Being Dropped By Label
The Voice UK’s first champion Leanne Mitchell has been dropped by her record label, and she is now back performing gigs at Potters Leisure Resort where she worked from the age of 16 until she won the show back in 2012.
The Norfolk resort confirmed that reports were correct and she performed there over festive period.

The Mail Online spoke with a guest who stayed at the getaway, who was slightly shocked to see The Voice UK winner belting out the big tunes at the resort.
He told the publication: “We didn’t think she still sang there, given that she has been on The Voice, but she sang three songs.”
It seems that things are going from bad to worse for Leanne, as an insider for The Voice told the Mail that the show’s big wigs no longer use her to promote events linked the programme.
Ever the optimist, Leanne told the publication that despite her lack of success, she believes her experience on the show was a great one.
“I get to do things now that I never would have been able to. For that, I don’t regret being part of the first series of The Voice, in fact, I am truly grateful for the experience.”
She continued: “I was never in it for the fame, but to be a singer – that’s all I ever wanted.” The third series of The Voice sees quite a few changes as judges Jessie J and Danny O’Donoghue have been replaced by pop princess Kylie Minogue and Kaiser Chiefs front man Ricky Wilson.
Former hosts Holly Willoughby and Reggie Yates have left the show and Celebrity Big Brother host Emma Willis and former JLS singer Marvin Humes will take over presenting duties. The Voice is back tonight on BBC1 at 7pm.
