SHOCKED STAR: MO ADENIRAN WINNER THE VOICE UK 2017

Mo looked shocked after his name was announced as the winner of The Voice 2017

Mo Adeniran's journey on The Voice

Mo, 21, won his place in the Jennifer Hudson's team after going head to head against Diamond in the sing-offs.

Jennifer decided to keep Mo after he impressed with his version of A Change Is Gonna Come by Sam Cooke.

Mo sang Iron Sky by Paolo Nutini in his first audition, which made all four judges to turn around and despite pleas from the others, Mo opted for Jennifer as his mentor.

Even though she lost the battle, all was not lost for Diamond, she was stolen by Gavin.

In the Knockout show Mo was saved by the public and in the quarter-final Jennifer chose Mo to go through.

Mo was chosen by the public during the semi-final round to go through to the FINAL.

Mo Adeniran's background

Mo Adeniran was adopted by a family at the age of three - only to be taken away again at the age of eight after it was discovered his adoptive mother was abusive.

He told Daily Star Sunday: “Social services stepped in. They saved me. It was a physical thing. She could be very hands on at times. Things happened that weren’t right.”

He was then placed back into social services and his troubled family life led him to go off the rails as a teen.

This came to a head when Mo lost his close pal in 2015 after he died from a drug overdose.

Mike Carter, was one of Mo’s bandmates, battled with an addiction to painkillers which he was taking for chronic back pain.

Tragically, Mo suffered another personal loss when his friends from the band Viola Beach died in a car crash last year.

The band, also from Warrington, were to play at a tribute concert for Mike before the accident Sweden which killed Kris Leonard, River Reeves, Tomas Lowe, and Jack Dakin.
