The 23-year-old, from New Carron, was crowned the winner of the ITV show last night and his neighbours were among those rooting for Team Craig.

Socially distanced groups gathered outside to watch the live broadcast projected on the gable end of a house.

Thrilled neighbours cheered as Craig delivered three performances which saw the former St Mungo’s High School pupil win the public vote ahead of Grace Holden, Hannah Williams and Okulaja and secure a recording contract with Polydor Records.
