The Voice

Kevin Simm has been crowned winner of The Voice 2016 UK on BBC One.

This evening’s last live show saw the final four – Lydia Lucy, Kevin Simm, Jolan and Cody Frost – kick off singing both a new solo song and a duet with their coach.

Jolan opened the show with a Marvin Gaye classic while Lydia followed it up with a cover of Alicia Keys' No One.

Kevin's nailed every note of Rihanna's Stay before Cody round off the first set of songs with Mad World.

Lines then opened before the finalists returned to the stage to sing a duet with their coach .

There was then a performance from guest star Meghan Trainor, singing No before lines froze to decide the top two.

Cody Frost and Lydia Lucy were announced as the artists with the fewest votes in the first of tonight's Voice UK final results, leaving Kevin Simm and and Jolan to fight it out in the second half of the show.

The pair of Team Ricky artists went on to return to the stage for a third time and perform their version of this year's winner's single, a original track called 'All You Good Friends'.

Hosts Marvin Humes and Emma Willis then revealed the final results in a tense announcement.

The artist with the most viewer votes tonight and therefore the winner of The Voice 2016 was Kevin Simm.

"I can't believe it, I can't believe it," he reacted. "I'm so grateful for everyone who has voted."

It gives Ricky his second consecutive win, making him the only coach to ever win two series.

Now Kevin will release his winner's single later tonight, available to buy on iTunes, etc. or to stream.
