Spicy food – I tend to avoid anything spicy when I’m singing.

Who’s the best cook you know?
My mum.

What’s on your rider?
I’m not that demanding (or rock ‘n’ roll!) Honey, lemon and ginger and water. Plus a nice bottle of red for after a show.

There’s no place like home! We have fantastic restaurants all over the UK.

Only water!
