    Former West Hatch High School student through to next stage on BBC ONE talent show

    Former West Hatch High School student Ryan Green has reached the next stage of the BBC ONE talent show The Voice.

    Last night viewers saw him fail to be chosen by his coach Rita Ora for the next part of the show - but he was offered a lifeline when Tom Jones and Will i Am attempted to ‘steal’ him to join their teams.

    Ryan decided to go with rapper Will i Am.

    Ryan, who lives in Hainault, left the Chigwell school in 2013 having studied GCSE music. He is now studying full-time at the Brit School.

    It is the second time the 18-year-old has appeared on the show having failed to get through the ‘blind audition’ stage last year.

    Ryan said he wanted to make another appearance to show the panel how he has progressed over the past year.

    Ryan is a singer/pianist who during his time at West Hatch was a regular performer at school concerts sometimes performing his own work.

    West Hatch High School music teacher Mauro Sheehan said: “Congratulations to Ryan Green, and I wish him well.

    “He left us with many talents and it's great to see how these are developing and coming to fruition.”

    Ryan also plays percussion and attended Redbridge Music School.

    He is the latest West Hatch High School student to appear on a national television talent show.

    Jonathan Antoine and Charlotte Jaconelli, the singing duo Jonathan and Charlotte, were runners-up in ITV's Britain's Got Talent three years ago while Sonny Jay, part of the Loveable Rogues, reached the final in the same year.

    Meanwhile John Wilding reached the judges' houses stage on ITV's X-Factor for two successive years in 2010 and 2011.
