Una Foden 'angry' and 'offended' by Bressie's favouritism accusations on The Voice of Ireland

The coaches are getting tetchy this week and for once it does not involve Kian Egan.
In the second week of battles, 14 contestants go head to head to win a place in the Live Knockouts.
However, while pairs of contestants will be pitted against each other with duets on Sunday night, the biggest rivalry sparks between coaches Una Foden and Bressie.
Bressie criticises Una's choice of song for contestants Mags White from Cork and Daniel O'Donnell's drummer Nigel Connell from Meath and accuses her of favouritism.
Una pits Mags and Nigel against each other for the second time - this time singing John Newman's 2013 hit Love Me Again.
After the performance Bressie says, "It was a good arrangement of that song but it definitely suited you more Nigel.
"It's a male vocal really and it's in that particular register you can break your voice up and get raspy.
"That one one hand isn't massively fair when a singer can't sing in the register where they're strongest."
Una says she is "angry" and "offended" by the comments.
"That's a massive swipe at me to say that. I'm offended you said that because you basically said I was unfair to [Mags]," she says.
"She sang her heart out and you could hear that she's an amazing singer. I'm going to get you back."

Mags White vs Nigel Connell
Eimear Crealey vs Maria Cuche
David Idioh vs Marc Egan
