A Kirkcaldy fireman impressed all four judges when he appeared on BBC One’s ‘The Voice’ on Saturday night.

Stevie McCrorie (29), from Alva in Clackmannanshire, performed Kodaline’s ‘All I Want’ for celeb judges Will.i.am, Tom Jones, Ricky Wilson and Rita Ora on the popular music entertainment show which was broadcast at 7.00 p.m.

The father-of-one, who works at Kirkcaldy Fire Station, persuaded all the coaches to turn around for him in the blind auditions when he sang in the series opener.

He was a particular favourite of Rita Ora’s who was seen swooning on the talent show and falling out of her chair after he performed!

But while she was keen to have him on her team, Stevie opted to go with Ricky Wilson. He will now progress to the next stage of the competition where teams of 12 contestants are whittled down to seven.

Stevie, who only trained to become a firefighter two years ago, watched Saturday’s pre-recorded show with friends and family in a pub in his hometown of Alva.

He has said he lacked the confidence to enter ‘The Voice’ so his colleagues did it for him.

He was signed up for the blind auditions after impressing the judges at his initial audition in the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow.
