The Voice UK winner Stevie McCrorie heading for debut Number 1

The singer’s winner’s single Lost Stars is on track to make Official Chart history for The Voice.

The Voice UK winner Stevie McCrorie looks set to score this week’s Official Singles Chart Number 1 with his debut single Lost Stars.

If it sales momentum continues, the track will be the highest charting single from a The Voice winner in history, overtaking series two victor Andrea Begley’s recording of Evanescence’s My Immortal, which reached Number 30 back 2013.

Lost Stars - whose proceeds go towards the BBC’s Performing Arts Fund - currently leads its nearest competitor, Nick Jonas’ Jealous (2), by nearly 4,000 combined chart sales.

The success of McCrorie’s release has also boosted the original version of the song - recorded by Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine for 2014 romantic comedy Begin Again - into the Top 100, landing at Number 64 today.

Elsewhere, current chart-topper Jess Glynne’s Hold My Hand slides two places to Number 3 midweek, followed by James Bay’s Hold Back The River (4) and Years & Years’ King (5).

New entries

Dutch dance duo Pep & Rash are set to make their chart debut on Sunday with Rumors (11), as Meghan Trainor’s new single Dear Future Husband is on track to score her a third Top 40, up ten places midweek to Number 38.

Finally, 2014 Britain’s Got Talent finalists Bars & Melody are set to score a second UK Top 40 with new track Stay Strong (40).
