The Voice contestant Leah McFall looks set to score the BBC’s reality TV singing contest its first Official Chart Top 10 hit this weekend!

23-year-old fashion student Leah, who is currently the bookie’s favourite to win the show, entered the Official Singles Chart at Number 16 on Sunday with her rendition of Gloria Gaynor’s 1979 classic, I Will Survive, after just over 24 hours on sale. On today’s Official Chart Update, the Belfast singer has climbed eight places to enter the Top 10 at Number 8.

The Voice’s previous highest charting singles artist was Tyler James, who peaked at Number 28 last October with Single Tear. However, prior to entering the first UK series of The Voice in 2012, Tyler had reached Number 16 in 2005 with his track Foolish. Last year’s Voice winner, Leanne Mitchell, peaked at Number 45 with her cover of Whitney Houston’s Run To You in June of last year.

Meanwhile, Bo Bruce is the highest charting albums artist to emerge from The Voice after scoring a Top 10 debut last month with Before I Sleep(10).
