Dancing On Ice’s Ray Quinn now ‘working as Hermes delivery driver’

Dancing On Ice champion Ray Quinn has opted to take on a side-career over the past few months.

The singer turned actor took up work with courier company Hermes at the start of the lockdown period with sources saying he's become a regular favourite with unexpected fans.

Liverpool-born Ray, 32, first experienced fame as a child actor on Liverpool based soap, Brookside, before becoming a household name on The X Factor.

He came second, with Leona Lewis taking home the top spot back in 2006.

The star went on to win Dancing On Ice in 2009 before bagging the top prize for Dancing On Ice All Stars in 2009.

Most recently, he appeared on Hollyoaks as Johnny Baxter, but now he can be found delivering parcels around Merseyside.

Sources close to Ray told The Sun: "Times are tough and no one can be snobby about work.

"Ray is a hard-grafting lad, and naturally loves being on the move, doing things and seeing people."

They added: "He feared getting bored so applied for a job with Hermes and has been dropping off packages ever since.

"It's kept him busy and he's really popular — especially with fans who want a selfie."

Ray, who released his third studio album in August, took to social media in January to reveal he had asked for girlfriend Emily Fletcher's hand in marriage.

He penned: "Welcome to the family my Queen #shesaidyes."

Emily later shared the snap, which saw her flaunting her killer diamond ring as she planted a kiss on Ray's head.

She wrote: "The most beautiful things are not seen or heard, but felt …. Falling in love with you is just indescribable…..Forever it is."

The couple went public with their relationship back in 2017 after he split from his ex, Emma Stephens two years earlier.
