Sheffield singer Jade Hewitt said goodbye to The Voice competition last night as she was knocked out of the talent show.

But Jade, from Richmond, has said she hopes leaving the show will be ‘just the start’ for her music career.

The 27-year-old narrowly lost out in the battle round of the competition against fellow contestant Christina Matovu as they jointly performed OneRepublic’s ‘Love Runs Out’ in the battle round.

Their mentor Ricky Wilson, from the Kaiser Chiefs, said it had been a tough decision.

Jade, who works in the admin department at Yorkshire Crisps in Wales Bar, thanked her supporters for their messages of support on Twitter last night after she was knocked out.

“It’s just the start, can’t keep a Yorkshire girl down for long,” she said.

“I’m so proud of my performance and wouldn’t change anything.”

Jade has previously experienced time in the limelight when she got down to the final 50 contestants in the live show of Pop Idol in 2003 while she was a teenager.

And she was also in a girl band which secured management and worked on an album in the hope of winning a recording contract.
