The Voice UK unveils this year's winner

Culture A- A A+

The verdict is in and we now have this year's winner of The Voice UK: 18-year-old Molly Hocking.

It's been a rollercoaster ride over the last couple of months, with coaches Jennifer Hudson, Sir Tom Jones, and Olly Murs all lucky enough to mentor some fine vocal talent along the way.

tonight's spectacular show witnessed Molly, Jimmy Ballito, Deana Walmsley, and Bethzienna Williams battle it out for the 2019 crown.

The running order saw each singer perform a new cover track, and later on, they were assigned special duets with their respective coaches.

This meant that both Tom and Olly performed twice, as the former had Bethzienna and Deana under his wing, whilst Olly mentored Molly and Jimmy.

Presenter Emma Willis then declared that the votes were frozen, with two finalists set to leave the competition. The two remaining singers would perform one more time for the studio audience.

As Jimmy and Bethzienna finished with the least votes, it was left to Deana and Molly to lock horns over the final wave of votes now that the lines had reopened.

Deana performed 'Autumn Leaves' once again (which was her semi-final round choice), whilst Molly mirrored this with a masterful version of 'I'll Never Love Again' for a second time.

After the traditional long pause, Emma Willis' revealed that Molly had won the competition.

"Someone pinch me," Molly reflected during her final interview. "All I can say is thank you, from the bottom of my heart all I can say is, I'm shocked, thank you so much!"

Graceful in defeat, Deana noted: "Thank you so much, it's been a pleasure. This doesn't stop now, I'll be out there, I'll get albums out there.

"I'm so happy for Molly, well done Molly."
