The Voice finalist Toni Warne has given viewers some idea of what they can expect from her performance when she takes to the show’s live stage for the first time on Saturday – and it won’t include dancing.
Toni – who will perform the Tina Turner classic Proud Mary – said that she is unlikely to be showing off her moves on stage, but joked about her tendency to pull anguished facial expressions instead.
“Dancing’s not really my field. I tend to leave dancing alone. And apparently I pull really scary faces as I strut about,” she said
The 34-year-old former Opportunity Knocks contestant will join team mates Vince Kidd, Ruth-Ann St Luce, Cassius Henry and Becky Hill as they make their first bid to remain in the competition.
Danny O’Donoghue’s team – consisting of Max Milner, Hannah Berney, Aleks Josh, David Julien and Bo Bruce – will also make their live debut.
Meanwhile Bruce has hinted that Team Danny has had ‘limited’ time with the Script singer, but suggested it was down to bosses on the show wanting to keep things fair between the teams.
Her remarks follow reports last weekend that Tom Jones’ team had had twice as much rehearsal time with their mentor than the members of Will.i.am’s team.
“They’ve got to hold it back so that everyone’s having a fair amount of contact,” she said.
“Danny goes out of his way to make sure that each and every one of us is alright and if one of us is having a wobble he knocks down the door to talk about it,” Bo added.
“If Will’s away out of the country, then we aren’t seeing Danny, they’re keeping it as fair as they can.”
