Leanne from The Voice is the new face of c2c
IT may have seemed Leanne Jarvis’s career was running out of steam, but the singer has just been revealed as the face of c2c trains.
Leanne, from Leigh, who featured on BBC1 hit show the Voice this year, will front the next poster campaign for the train operator, which helped garner support for her while on the show.
Leanne’s dad Dave became famous in his own right after using his job as a train driver to ask commuters to vote for her over the train tannoys.
Now Leanne will steal the limelight back from her dad by appearing on train station billboards, fronting competitions and C2C advertising videos.
Leanne, 25, said: “c2c was really good to me when I was on the Voice. It had posters of me at Fenchurch Street on Saturdays telling people to vote for me.
“I went to say thank you with a bottle of champagne and was asked if I would be the face of c2c.
“My dad was absolutely brilliant during the show and now I will be with him at work. My face will be all over the trains, I will do competitions where people can win singing lessons and they can win tickets to see me when I perform at the O2.”
Leanne will perform at the arena in London, on November 14, with acts including Ms Dynamite, Wiley and Wretch 32.
Her dad, who lives in Hazlewood, Hockley, will also be there to fulfill his dream of introducing Leanne to the stage.
Leanne added: “It has always been his dream to introduce me at the O2 arena. He’s already worked out what he is going to say. He’s really excited about it, but he says he’s losing sleep.”
Leanne is in the studio writing music. For more information visit leannejarvis.co.uk
