A statement from The Voice states 26-year-old Beth withdrew for ‘personal reasons.’

The statement read:

“Due to personal reasons which have only just come to light, The Voice producers, the BBC and Beth agreed that she should withdraw from The Voice.”

The singer added added: “Being on The Voice has been the best experience of my life, the production team and contestants have all been incredible and I have loved performing on the show. Paloma has also been a great support.”

The Mirror revealed that the singer was battling an addiction to cocaine and had been using the substance during rehearsals for the show.

Beth said:

“I am sorry. I am an addict. I have let everybody down on the show. Two years ago I realised I had a problem with drugs. I was using them to cope with various issues in my life.”
