What was the first record you remember buying? I’m not going to lie, it was Take That & Party.


Which song was (or would be) the first dance at your wedding? Top 3: The mushy option would be Alison Krauss - Looking In The Eyes Of Love; semi-mushy option is Elshaneed by Foy Vance; not so mushy option is The XX - Islands.


Which track would you like played at your funeral? Track? I’m going to prepare a playlist.


What’s your karaoke speciality? Tinie Tempah’s Pass Out – it’s pretty special to hear a Northern Irish person rap.


What was the best artist meeting of your life? Take That backstage at The BRIT Awards rehearsals on Valentines’ Day in 2011 - a childhood dream come true.
