Dawn O'Porter didn't want Andrea Begley to win 'The Voice'.
The 34-year-old TV star is a huge fan of the BBC One talent contest, but she was disappointed with the end result of the second series and thinks bookie's favourite Leah McFall would have been a more suitable winner because she's got what it takes to sell out London's The O2.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz while promoting Jacob's Creek, the official wine of Wimbledon, Dawn said: "I love, love, love 'The Voice' but I think the result was wrong. I think the person who should have won it was Leah and that would have made the show very exciting."
The brunette beauty - who is married to actor Chris O'Dowd - insists Andrea has a fantastic voice and wishes her well with her singing career, but thinks her triumph has devalued the competition.
She explained: "Andrea's got a great voice but who do you want to go and see at the O2 Arena and who will sell out? I just think unfortunately it's not going to do the show much good, which is a shame because we love it so much, we want it to do really well, but I just don't think it was a credit to the show.
"I hope she does well, it was good that someone that felt like the underdog got her moment but I just don't think she's the person who's going to sell out arenas."
