“I’m having the time of my life. I feel like the main show gave me a lot of anxiety, but this gives me pure joy in bucketloads. You see it with your own eyes, how growing up and becoming an adult gives us inhibition, self-doubt... But we all, at some point when we were kids, had a purity and our talents could really shine.”
“I feel like it’s about not patronising them, so just saying: ‘Take a breath, you’re brilliant’. It’s about encouragement, it’s not about drawing attention to it because kids are really aware of embarrassment and stuff.” The Voice Kids returns to STV tonight, 7.25pm.
