LEIGH’S latest reality TV star is hoping to keep the momentum going as the TV show The Voice reaches its crucial final weeks.

David Julien will sing live this weekend and hopes to gain enough public support in the phone votes to put him through to the semi finals and avoid being one of four singers dropped.

David, who has been installed as one of the bookmakers’ favourites to win the competition, will also sing alongside some of his fellow contestants in a group performance with their mentor, The Script front man Danny O’Donoghue.

David, 23, said: “Getting through has given me confidence and it’s good to know people are watching and listening, but it’s all about the song choice. I can’t say what I’m going to be singing this weekend, but it’s going to be good.”

David’s bid for stardom has also received the backing of Fred Longworth High School in Tyldesley, where he was a student.

Rick Asbury, head of the school’s arts college, said: “There’s a real buzz around school, with posters on all the doors asking pupils to vote for him. It’s also great for pupils to see his success.”
