Kerry Katona speaks out after daughter’s audition on The Voice Kids

Kerry Katona has spoken out after her daughter's tearful audition on The Voice Kids this evening.

The popular singing competition sees four stars take on roles as coaches, with Will.i.am returning as one of the four alongside McFly's Danny Jones and fellow pop stars Pixie Lott and Paloma Faith.

Presented by Emma Willis, the junior version of the hit talent show sees children between the ages of seven and 14 display their musical talents in a bid to win a £30,000 prize which contributes towards their musical education, along with a family holiday to Universal Orlando Resort.

In tonight's episode, Warrington -born Kerry watched from the wings as her 12-year-old daughter took to the stage.

Young Heidi became emotional during her rendition of Jasmine Thomas' version of I Try by Macy Gray.

As the song continued, Heidi became more confident and managed to impress three of the star coaches, with Will.i.am, Danny and Paloma all turning around in their famous red chairs in a bid to mentor Heidi.

Kerry was also overcome with emotion during her daughter's performance.

Heidi chose Paloma Faith as her mentor to move forward in the competition, which was filmed before the coronavirus lockdown came into effect.
