Craig Eddie has been named winner of The Voice UK 2021.

The Scottish singer defeated fellow contender Grace Holden in the final after James Okulaja and Hannah Williams were both eliminated earlier in the episode.

As the news was announced, he turned his back on the camera and covered his face.

He said: “I still am shocked, honestly.

Thank you to everyone, thank you to Scotland, thank you to everyone who voted.

“Genuinely, I cannot express my appreciation.”

During the final, he impressed the judges by performing an original song called Come Waste My Time.

Eddie was mentored by singer Anne-Marie in her first series on the singing programme.

She replaced Meghan Trainor to join the coaching panel alongside Sir Tom Jones, Olly Murs and Will.i.am.

During the episode, each of the finalists performed with their mentors, with Anne-Marie and Eddie teaming up for a rendition of No Doubt’s Don’t Speak.

Anne-Marie, 29, previously said she was “determined to stop Olly getting a hat-trick” of victories with singers he has coached on the programme.

She said she is “so competitive”, adding: “So that’s obviously my goal of my whole entire life right now and I’m going to be dreaming about it and not being able to sleep at the same time.”

Last year, Murs triumphed as his contestant Blessing Chitapa won the show.

Chitapa returned to the stage during the final, to perform her new single I Smile.

Viewers tuned in to see who was crowned the winner of The Voice UK 2021 on Saturday night.

The series finale, hosted by Emma Willis saw Craig Eddie crowned this year's winner.

The Scottish singer pipped fellow contender Grace Holden to the title after James Okulaja and Hannah Williams were both eliminated earlier in the episode.

The four finalists were chosen by the public after each coach – Will.I.Am, Olly Murs, Anne-Marie and Tom Jones – picked two people each to save in the semi-final.

And it was Anne-Marie, 29, who emerged victorious during her first series, taking Olly's unbeaten run.

But those watching at home were a little confused by Will's reaction after the news was announced.

Once host Emma had spoken to champion Craig and runner-up, Grace, Will.i.am picked up his mobile phone, the Express reports, seemingly unaware the camera was still on him.

And some viewers were not impressed.

“Sorry but how rude was will I am on the voice going on his phone like that #TheVoiceUK," tweeted one.

Another complained: "Some lads dream has just been made and he’s buzzing just winning #TheVoiceUK and Will.I.am is just sitting on his phone playing candy crush."

"Why is @iamwill sat on his phone?" a third added.

Another joked: "Will on his phone ordering an Uber #TheVoiceUK."

However, fans of the American music star will know that Will does this throughout each series as he likes to document what's happening to the social media world.
