The Voice's Lauren Bannon practices her Oscar speech in the car in case singing doesn't work out for her and she becomes an award-winning actress instead.

The 27-year-old hopeful - who is being mentored by Olly Murs on the singing competition - can see herself becoming a global sensation one day, but not in the field that many may expect, as she's secretly hoping that she'll land a role in a blockbuster and she'll be so successful that she'll be nominated for an award.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, she said: "I practice my Oscar speech alone in the car in case the singing doesn't work out and I become an award-winning actress!"

But, for now, the brunette beauty is going to take all of the advice Olly has dished out to her over the past few months and hope she can win the singing competition.

Asked the best advice from Olly she's received, she said: "Don't be afraid of letting things go wrong. As long as you deliver the performance, people won't know."
