The Voice UK: Stevie McCrorie wants to start a band

The Voice UK champ Stevie McCrorie has confessed he'd like to start a band.

The Scottish singer triumphed as a soloist on The Voice 2015, winning the competition last weekend.

But it seems that it's in a group that Stevie's always felt most comfortable, admitting: "I've played in bands all my life and there's plenty of people I want to help."

He explained: "My old drummer - I call him The Machine - he's a policeman, actually.

"He texted me and said, 'I miss music and seeing you on The Voice made me realise it's my passion'.

"People like that I would love on tour with me - real mates."

Stevie told how one of his former bands included the policeman, his firefighter self, a postman, tattoo artist and shop worker.

Despite being awarded a £100,000 record contract after winning The Voice, Stevie said: "I still want to be in a band, I love that feeling of bouncing off each other."

Meanwhile, Stevie has suggested that this year's winner's track was HIS idea, although insisted it was probably just "coincidence".

He said: "When we heard the single the first time some of the guys in The Voice looked at me and said: 'It sounds like your song'.

"It's a coincidence because I said to the producers just a week before: 'Why don't we have a single at the end of the show?', then it appeared."

Currently, Stevie is at Number 1 in the charts with his cover of Adam Levine's Lost Stars.
