Tyrone woman Andrea Begley won the final of this year's series of 'The Voice' on BBC One last night.

The prize for the partially-sighted 27-year-old from Pomeroy is a "lucrative" recording contract.

She told supporters: "I will try my best to put your vote to good use". Her mentor, Danny O'Donoghue, described her as "an inspiration".

Immediately after the result was announced, Begley said she "never, ever, ever could have imagined" winning the contest, adding: "I have to thank everyone at home for voting for me."

She had chosen to sing 'My Immortal' by Evanescence, before joining O'Donoghue's band The Script to perform 'Hall of Fame', and then singing 'Angel' by Sarah McLachlan in the final round.
