No fes­tive hol­i­day for

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Kevin Simm's wife wouldn't let him go on hol­i­day over Christ­mas. The 'Voice' win­ner is look­ing for­ward to a break over the fes­tive pe­riod with spouse Laura and their young sons Char­lie, five, and Oliver, three, but de­spite his sug­ges­tion they go on va­ca­tion, they are plan­ning to stay at home. He said: "I'm not do­ing pan­tomime this Christ­mas but I am look­ing for­ward to spend­ing time with the fam­ily [as I've been] gig­ging most nights, so I would barely see the kids. I think this Christ­mas I'll just be spend­ing as much time with my wife and kids. "I men­tioned try­ing to go abroad with my wife, but I don't think I'll win that bat­tle; af­ter all Xmas is all about fam­ily." Kevin's lat­est al­bum, 'Re­cover', is largely in­spired by his fam­ily, with the ti­tle track ded­i­cated to his spouse. He ex­clu­sively told BANG Show­biz: "The ma­jor­ity of the in­spi­ra­tion is down to my fam­ily. There's a song with the ti­tle 'Re­cover' which is specif­i­cally about his wife. But the ti­tle of the al­bum is about me feel­ing that I wouldn't be in this po­si­tion with a new al­bum out at this time of my life." The 35-year-old singer shot to fame as a mem­ber of Lib­erty X - com­prised of the los­ing fi­nal­ists on 2001 real­ity TV show 'Pop­stars' but in­sists his life hasn't al­ways been glam­orous. He said: "I've had so many jobs... the worst job would prob­a­bly be when I was do­ing shop fit­ting and I did it with my brother. With all the dif­fer­ent bits in aisles in su­per­mar­kets, you would fit them and it was hor­ren­dous, heavy and bor­ing."
