Craig finished with one of his own songs - a move he said was a risk, but one he wanted to take to put himself out there.

He went head to head with Olly Murs’ finalist, Grace, and triumphed thanks to the public vote.

A stunned Craig said: “Thank you to everyone, to Scotland and to Anne Marie for believing in me and taking me to this point.
