Cleopatra star makes surprise comeback on 'The Voice'

With just one note, Cleo Higgins became the fastest scoop ever on The Voice.

Slamming the red button in record time, Jessie J turned her chair to try and bag the former Cleopatra member after she wowed her with her rendition of Beyonce's Love On Top, which has been revealed in a teaser for the show.

Ending the clip with Jessie grooving away to the songstress, viewers have been left guessing as to whether Cleo takes the Price Tag's singer's offer, or whether the other judges will step in to ask the singer to become part of their team.



Achieving fame on the back of Cleopatra's Theme, Cleo and her sisters Zainam and Yonah achieved international stardom in their early teens.

Boasting a string of top five hits to their name, the girls also starred in a popular ITV show Comin' Atcha, which detailed their antics.The band sadly split on the eve of their second album, which was declared a flop by critics.

Now 30, Cleo has decided to go solo and give her career another chance.

"I have been away from the music industry far too long," said the former artist.

"It's now time for me to be seen and heard".

The second series of the voice will see coaches Tom Jones, Jessie J, Danny O'Donoghue and return to the fold.


In another suspense-making move, the coaches will be able to "steal" acts from other mentors, which will offer acts who have not made it through to the final rounds another lifeline.

Tensions are already high between the coaches after Jessie and Danny went head to head to win over Lemuel Knights' affections.

Featuring in the last series of the competition, the mentors fought to get the budding artist on side.

Boasting that he had been in the business more than fifteen years, Danny riled Jessie, leading to scoff "mummy and daddy are always fighting".

The show also faces some stiff competition this year. The show will go head to head against Britain’s Got Talent, which has seen Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Amanda Holden and Alesha Dixon return to judge the sixth series of the show.

The second episode of the third season will air on Saturday.
