A WEE bit of help from Daniel O'Donnell pushed angel-voiced singer Andrea Begley to win The Voice UK.

The 26-year-old was the shock winner of the talent series last Saturday night, but it turns out she has friends in high places.

Donegal native O'Donnell (51) had campaigned for the singer and asked his legions of fans to back Andrea as she is "the niece of a very good friend of mine called Philomena Begley".

It was on June 5 that Daniel first told fans about Andrea's participation in the show, through his official website danielodonnell.org.

Following the win, Daniel's Facebook page said: "I'm delighted to announce that Andrea Begley won the Voice UK tonight, thank you so much to anyone who voted for her."
