The Voice winner Stevie McCrorie 'in talks' to keep fireman job

Stevie McCrorie wants to keep his job as a fireman after being crowned winner of 'The Voice'.

The 30-year-old hunk - who won the BBC singing competition last weekend - has revealed he's "in talks" to hold on to his job in the fire brigade in case his music career doesn't work out.

He said: "I'm starting a career, and I only just started a new career two years ago. It was hard, and that's what's scary.

"I might have to quit a job I worked so hard to get into.

"I'm hoping the fire service help me and let me get back into it. I'm kind of in talks at the moment."

The Scottish singer - whose cover of 'Lost Stars' reached the top of the midweek charts - is giving himself a year to find stardom whilst keeping his options open.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I hate the world fail, because I don't want that to be an option, but sometimes it's not in your control.

"I'm realistic. I'm going to stay fit, because I think it's important."

Stevie - who has two-year-old daughter Bibi with wife Amy - added: "After a year you get a feel for whether this is happening. If I can play gig venues, festivals, have a fan base and make a living from it and give my family a nice home.

"We're in an ex-council house at the moment. My dream is to have a log fire."
