‘Then I saw him on Saturday Night Takeaway. I thought I had a lot of fun with him [when we hung out before]. Blue [the band] were also on Saturday Night Takeaway.

‘So I called Tim Cash, from MTV news, who knew [Blue singer] Simon Webbe, and got him to pass my number on to Matt.’

‘So you made the first move?’ Keith clarified. 

‘Yeah. And [Matt] made me wait three days to call me back!’
