The Voice coach Will.i.am shows off a hidden skill during the latest auditions - by speaking Filipino.

The Black Eyed Peas star reveals his linguistic talent after he discovers one of the hopefuls on the show hails from the south east Asian islands.

Joseph Apostol, who moved to the UK when he was 10, wows the coaches on Saturday with his performance of Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? by The Shirelles.

And after the audition Will.i.am is delighted to learn that the 21-year-old comes from the Philippines, like his Peas bandmate Apl.de.ap.

Will says: "Wooh - like my best friend Apl?"

He then reels off a number of words and whispers to the audience: "I just hit him with Filipino secrets."
