The star has announced plans to audition for ‘The Voice’ to prove she can actually sing.
Katie, who released the single ‘I Got U’ last year to a very mixed reception, admitted she was hoping to impress judges Will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, Olly Murs and Tom Jones, whose approval would help shut up those who criticise her singing.
Speaking to The Voice’s host Emma Willis on ‘Loose Women’, she said: “I’m actually going to do ‘The Voice’ next year. Do you want to know why? Because I get so much stick about my singing when I know I can sing.
“If the judges turn around for me I can go ‘there you go they turned around for me’ and if they don’t I’ll still do it.”
She continued: “I really want to do it and I am going to do it. There’s no harm in me saying it because they won’t know. I am 100 per cent doing it.”
Katie’s admission had quite the reaction on Twitter, with some threatening to boycott the show, while others were curious to see how she would get on:
After Katie put in a shaky performance of her single on ‘Loose Women’ last year, former ‘X Factor’ star Craig Colton, who wrote the song, defended her, claiming she had “inner ear difficulties”.
Katie, who previously attempted to represent the UK at Eurovision in 2005, didn’t seem bothered by the criticism though, insisting she was “living her dream”.
‘Loose Women’ airs weekdays at 12.30pm on ITV.
