Matt Croke, said, “All my life I’ve been involved in musical theatre, it’s what I know and what I love. 2020 changed a lot of things, but most noticeably for me I wanted to find a different way to do what I love the most. So when an opportunity came along to be involved with The Voice UK I jumped at it, and I am so proud to be doing my thing and to be waving the flag for the industry of which I am so proud to be involved in.”
