Choir leader Steph Wallace Carr told to the Liverpool Echo that he was devastated – “gutted”- at the result when they were voted off the show and that he made a point of coming backstage to hang out with them and shed a tear with the band.

She revealed: “He said it wasn’t the end and that he wanted to continue to work with us.” He acknowledged they’d all shared an emotional journey together and encouraged the choir to keep going and that they would make it in the end. Not only did he cry with them backstage, Robbie also sang his hit ‘Angels’ with them after an emotional message of support and love.
