The Voice UK fans were left fuming on Saturday night after coach Olly Murs sent home contestant Chantelle Padden.

However, some fans of the show thought Olly made the right decision.

One viewer tweeted: "Grace deserved to go through.

"That was a hard one for Olly. Grace is great," another added.

Explaining the reason behind his decision, Olly said he was picking the contestant that he felt could "coach more" and "get more out of it".
