The Voice UK: Hunky Stevie McCrorie LOVED flirting with Rita Ora... as did his wife!

Stevie McCrorie (The Voice UK)

The Voice 2015 contestant Stevie McCrorie has confessed he loved flirting with Rita Ora on the show... as did his wife!

Stevie's blind audition on The Voice UK last weekend was a standout as the fireman had all four coaches turn around for him.

Rita was left floored not only by his performance but also by his hunky looks, even giving Stevie a back rub as he chose which team to join.

Stevie confessed he was like a"scared wee boy", saying; "It was just insane.

"I didn't know what to say. I've never been that great with girls in general, so when you've got somebody like Rita Ora kind of flirting with me, I was just like a wee boy."

But the dad-of-one admitted that Rita's actions helped him relax on the stage.

"It was such a build-up towards the blind audition. It's the first time I've ever been on TV and done that kind of thing," he explained. "So it was just a bit reassuring and it was a really good kind of ice breaker for me to get chatting to them and let my guard down a wee bit.

"I know that people want to hear the flirty thing, but I just saw it as a bit of fun. It was just quite a good laugh for me, I enjoyed it."

And as for Stevie's wife, she didn't mind: "She was just laughing about it and she saw it as good fun and a bit of a jest. She still married me! She was fine with it."

Meanwhile, Stevie told DigitalSpy why he decided to eventually snub Rita and instead join Team Ricky.

He said: "I just thought, 'Who would I go out for a pint with and feel relaxed with?' It just felt like he was a genuine guy when I watched him last year, and I just kind of liked his backstory - we've been in bands, and there are similarities, and that's why I wanted to go with him."

The Voice continues this weekend on BBC One.
