Meanwhile, Kyle told his KISS FM listeners last week that he would prefer an unknown actor to play him. 

Kyle, who is close friends with the former King Cross nightclub owner with the pair once living across the road from one another, appears in the book multiple times. 

John writes in the Last King of the Cross:  ‘Love him or hate him, I have travelled the world with him, and we’ve always had great times together.

‘From him putting on a private full-on cabaret show on the coffee table in our villa in Ibiza to just having breakfast in a street diner in LA.

‘I find him to be a loyal friend, straight to the point and non-judgmental. I’m unfortunately never up early enough to listen to his show, so all I judge him by is the time I spend with him. 

‘You could put me and him in a phone box – although he wouldn’t fit – and we’d have a great time just talking s**t.’
