Jay Aston was a member of Bucks Fizz, when they won the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin in 1981.

She is now 52 and is hoping to relaunch her career.

She left Buck Fizz in 1984 after she was injured in a bus crash leaving bandmate Mike Nolan with severe head injuries.

She is still friends with Mike and Cheryl Baker, but they have lost the legal battle to use the name Buck’s Fizz to the fourth member, Bobby G.

The judges Tom Jones, Jessie J, Danny O’Donoghue and are listening to the singers with their backs turned on them.

They can then push a button if they like what they are hearing and face the contestant, and bid for them to join their team for the rest of the contest.

The Voice UK is on at BBC One at 20.05 BST (21.05 CET).

There are several contestants in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö who have either been on or even won their own countries’ versions of The Voice.

Roberto Bellarosa from Belgium and Dina Garipova from Russia are two The Voice winners to mention but two.
