The Voice 2015 winner Stevie McCrorie doesn't want to quit his day job


The Voice 2015 winner Stevie McCrorie has revealed he's yet to actually quit his job as a firefighter.

And by the sounds of it, he doesn't actually want to!

The Series 4 champ admitted he was technically even meant to be working this weekend.

“I haven’t handed my notice in yet. I’m on the rota for the weekend so I should be there," he said ahead of last nights final. “I’m hoping whatever ­happens with my singing now that they’ll keep the door open for me. I want to have a back-up. You don’t know what’s going to happen.”

But Stevie has asked for some time off after the work he's put in on The Voice, which he was put forward for by his colleagues.

He told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper: “I spoke to someone high up at work and they said they are all really proud of me and they’ll help me out. I need some time out because my whole experience on The Voice has been quite daunting.

“I’m just a normal family man. To go back to work this week would be a ­struggle.”

And Stevie went on to admit that the rockstar life doesn't quite appeal to him, saying he hoped to stay at home in Scotland if he won the series.

“I would like to stay at home as that is where my ­family is," the 30-year-old explained. “I want to commit to a ­career as much as I can but I don’t want to take my little girl away from where I want her to grow up and her gran and grandad.

“It will be hard going back and forth to ­London but it is a sacrifice I would be willing to make if it meant giving my family a better life.”
