Voice glams up with ex-beauty queen

The Voice goes glamorous on Saturday when the singing show gets its very own version of cartoon stunner Jessica Rabbit.

Aret Kapetanovic, the daughter of 1980s singing star Patti Boulaye, stuns the judges with her audition version of Paloma Faith's Upside Down - and they get another shock when they turn their chairs around to see her in a black sequin number with a thigh-high split.

Jessie J compares her to the glamorous character in the 1988 hit film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, describing her as "Jessica Rabbit in real life".

The Price Tag singer told her: "I genuinely think out of everyone we've seen so far, I think you are the prime example of exactly what the show is about. I didn't expect to see you at all, how amazing you look, it didn't go with what you sang.

"Can I borrow your dress?"

Former beauty queen Aret, 35, said the BBC One singing show was ideal for her, saying: "It's all about the voice, and there isn't a case of 'you look pretty good, maybe we could do something with you'.

"It just comes down to whether I've got the talent or not. And that's terrifying."
