Former Hollyoaks actress Alice Barlow is among the contestants on the second series of The Voice UK.

Barlow, who played Rae Wilson in the Channel 4 teen soap, apparently impressed at the Blind Auditions stage of the BBC talent show.

"Alice has a fantastic voice and certainly looks like a popstar," a source told fansite Soap Squawk.

In 2008, Barlow performed at a local talent show judged by X Factor's Louis Walsh. After covering Alicia Keys's 'If I Ain't Got You', Walsh described her as a "natural talent" and compared her to a "little Lulu".
