Wills' ex Rose Farquhar in fame bid on BBC's The Voice

By Lorna Cooper

A former girlfriend of the Duke of Cambridge will audition on BBC One's The Voice this Saturday.

Rose Farquhar became involved with William when he left Eton in 2000. The daughter of Captain Ian Farquhar, master of the Beaufort Hunt, she has known the future king since they were children.

The 31-year-old sang before The Voice's all-star panel of US artist, Boy George, Ricky Wilson and Paloma Faith in the hope that at least one of them would turn their chair for her.

She told the talent show coaches: "I'm Rose from London. I basically celebrate emerging brands in home-grown markets."

Farquhar added: "I have sung since I was a little girl, singing really makes me tick."

The pop star wannabe performed Anyone Who Had A Heart, the song popularised by Cilla Black.

"Not many people in the world get to sing feet from Will, Paloma Faith, Boy George and Ricky. It is insane," Farquhar said on the show.
