Due to sign a record deal with Universal Music which is said to be worth £500,000 it will not be long until The Voice winner Leanne Mitchell can call herself a millionaire.
Insiders have claimed that Leanne will be rolling in it as she could make a cool million from the release of her record and several lucrative promotions.
But Leanne despite all that the talent show winner has said she will not be getting too carried away with her pending fortune.

The singer told the MailOnline she would keep her feet on the ground, saying, 'I never came into this to be famous. I just went into it because I was a singer.'
'I don't know what it feels like to be a celebrity. I just try to keep my feet on the ground as much as possible.'
She continued, 'I like to lead a normal life. I won't be spilling out of nightclubs. I want to concentrate on my music.'
Mitchell started working as a full-time professional singer when she left school aged 16.
She landed a job as an entertainer at Potters Leisure Resort in Hopton-on-Sea, Norfolk, and immediately fell for her teenage sweetheart Rob Hurren, 31, who was working backstage at the time.
The pair married last year and live less than a mile from her childhood home in nearby Lowestoft.

Yesterday, she told of plans to keep her holiday camp job as a 'fall-back' in case her new career fails to flourish.
She said, 'When I went into this competition, they left everything open for me. So I guess it's a fall back option if it doesn't work out.'
'To be honest I haven't got a clue what I will be doing in even a few weeks' time. I've always worked hard to pay the bills, performing in the resort and giving singing lessons.'
She added, 'This is a massive achievement that I have worked so hard for, but I am not taking it for granted.'
In Saturday's final, Mitchell stunned coaches Tom Jones, Will.i.am, Jessie J and Danny O'Donoghue with a spirited rendition of Whitney Houston's Run To You.
She also showed off her powerful voice with a duet of Mama Told Me Not To Come alongside her mentor on the show, Sir Tom.

But the singer confessed she is so shy in real life she did not dare sing in front of an audience until she was ten.
She said: 'My parents bought me a karaoke machine when I was seven, so I started on that. But I didn't sing in front of anyone else until I was ten. I only had a little voice then.'
'When I get on stage I have a bit of an alter-ego. Singers are not necessarily the most outgoing people until they get on stage.'
'When I am singing I can express myself. I can be quite shy in normal life.'
Mitchell's father Mel, 54, is a mechanic and her mother Anita, 53, works in a call centre.
She thanked them, and her brother Daniel, 30, for their 'massive support.'
She said, 'When I first started singing in pubs after school, my Dad was my roadie. He carried all my equipment and supported me all the way. They have all been brilliant.'
The moment everything changed: After an emotional final Holly Willoughby announced Leanne as the winner
After her winning performance on Saturday, Leanne's first single – a reprise of her winning performance of Whitney Houston's Run To You – was released on iTunes and immediately reached No.12 on the online charts.
The Voice had a mixed night, attracting an average of 7.1million viewers.
The £11million show suffered an embarrassing slump after reaching its highest average of 10.7million in the middle of April.
However, BBC insiders admitted there was relief that the figures had gone up significantly from the previous week's semi-final, which only drew 5.1million viewers.
The search for next year's contestants has begun already as the series prepares for its second series.
