The Voice's Olly Murs is ecstatic as his act Blessing Chitapa wins final – after judge vowed to get naked if victorious

THE Voice's Olly Murs was over the moon tonight as his act Blessing Chitapa was crowned the series winner.

The victory came after cheeky Olly, who also won last year's series with Molly Hocking, promised to strip naked if the 18-year-old Blessing was victorious.

Speaking tonight, the two-time show winner said: "Blessing absolutely deserves to be crowned the winner of this year’s Voice UK!

"I’ve always believed in her from the start, and to think that I was the only coach who turned for her is amazing. She’s got an incredible voice, infectious personality and has a bright future ahead of her. I can’t wait to see what she does next."

Blessing is now relishing the release of her debut single Angels and has her sights set on a successful music career.

She said: “Winning The Voice UK 2020 is my biggest achievement yet. I am so proud of how far I have come and I’m so intrigued to see what the future holds for me!

"I’m hoping my new single Angels can bless and inspire people to think about a certain someone in their life who has always been there for them.”

In an interview with the Mail Online, Olly said he'd take on the viral coin dance challenge if he was the winning mentor.

It sees the performer sway in time to a swinging coin positioned in front of their manhood in a bid to protect their modesty.

Tonight's show, which was recorded earlier this week in front of a virtual audience, saw finalists Jonny Brooks (Team Tom), Gevanni Hutton (Team Will), Brooke Scullion (Team Meghan) and Blessing battle it out to secure a coveted record contract. 

The final four performed duets with their coaches; with Jonny and Sir Tom performing Dobie Gray’s Drift Away, Brooke sang Rag N’ Bone Man’s Giant with Ella Eyre, who stood in for coach Meghan Trainor, Gevanni sang Bob Marley’s No Woman No Cry with and Blessing performed James Bay's Hold Back The River with Olly.

And it was blessing who impressed the audience the most, bursting into tears as she was named the winner.
