Fife firefighter Stevie McCrorie missed out on the number one spot to pop sensation Jess Glynne yesterday.
Glynne held on to number one in the singles chart after fighting off strong challenges from the Alva singer, who triumphed on BBC talent show The Voice.
McCrorie was in the lead midweek with his version of Adam Levine’s Lost Stars but in the end the Scot had to settle for sixth.
It makes him the highest charting artist so far from The Voice UK, which he won a week past Saturday after being mentored by Ricky Wilson.
Meanwhile, London girl Glynne continues her wonder year after winning a Grammy for best dance recording in February for her collaboration with Clean Bandit on mega hit Rather Be.
The 25-year-old redhead singer-songwriter’s Hold My Hand retained the crown for a third week with almost 5,000 charts sales more than Jonas’s debut solo single Jealous.
The top five was completed by former number one King by Years and Years in third place, BRITs Critics’ Choice winner James Bay’s Hold Back The River at number four and Ed Sheeran’s Bloodstream in fifth.
In the albums chart, US pop-punk band All Time Low clinched their first UK chart-topper with sixth album Future Hearts.
The Americans came in just ahead of James Bay’s Chaos And The Calm at number two, Ed Sheeran’s X in third, and Sam Smith’s debut In The Lonely Hour at number four.
Last week’s number one from The Prodigy, The Day Is My Enemy, fell four places to complete this week’s top five.
