Chloe Castro and Beth Morris have pulled out of The Voice just hours before the live finals.
Chloe is leaving due to “health reasons” while Beth is pulling out for “personal reasons”.
A spokesman for the BBC said that the reasons for the departures were “unrelated”.
“Due to personal reasons which have only just come to light, The Voice producers, the BBC and Beth have agreed that she should withdraw from The Voice,” the statement said.
“Due to health reasons, Chloe has withdrawn from the competition. We wish her all the best.”
Chloe, who was on Ricky Wilson’s team, said: “I have decided to leave The Voice for health reasons. I have had a fantastic time and wish all the other contestants all the best in the competition.”
While Beth thanked her coach Paloma Faith in her statement: “Being on The Voice has been the best experience of my life, the production team and contestants have all been incredible and I have loved performing on the show.
“Paloma has also been a great support.”
The early departures will mean two contestants will leave tonight’s show instead of four.
The Voice is on BBC One from 7pm.
