Things got serious on The Voice tonight, as the coaches set about cutting their teams from 12 to six.


Contestants from the same team went up against each other as their coach decided whether to ditch them or keep them.

For those who got a no, they had a nerve-wracking wait to find out if one of the other coaches was going to 'steal' them.

So who won their battle, who got stolen and who is on their way back home? Check out the first week of results below.
