By On

The Voice UK frontrunner Leah McFall has charged to No3 on the iTunes chart, despite ratings for the show slipping to a new low for Friday's quarter final.

The talented vocalist, who is a member of's team, performed an unrecognisable version of Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive' on the show, and a studio recording of her rendition - which was released to iTunes immediately following the broadcast - has soared into the Top 3 on the online store's live charts.

Mike Ward, a member of Tom Jones' team, is also doing well online; reaching No39 on the listings with his country cover of Bruno Mars' 'When I Was Your Man'.

All three of Danny O'Donoghue's team members follow: Andrea Begley's 'Ho Hey' is No60, Karl Michael's 'A Thousand Years' is No69 and eliminated star Mitchel Emms is No105 with his cover of Imagine Dragons' smash 'Radioactive'.

At time of writing, Jessie J's singer Ash Morgan is No131 with 'Lego House', Alys Williams' 'Is This Love' is No147 and Matt Henry's 'Wonder' is No188.

The Voice's decision to allow the songs to chart is a contrast to The X Factor; which releases recordings of live performances to the store but makes them ineligible to chart.

Ratings for the show drooped below 5 million viewers on Friday night, with only 3.91 million then staying with it for the subsequent results show.

This weekend another four acts will be eliminated ahead of the June 22 finale.
