I love EMOM nights, so when Martin Christie said, back in January, would I compere the July EMOM as he was on holiday, I leapt at the chance. If you’d told me it would clash with England in a World Cup semi-final, I would have chortled heartily. Anyway, travel and hotels were booked, so off I went. In the end, as results bear me out, I made the right choice. It was surprisingly well-attended, though, and I got to perform with the peerless LIzzie Bradley, who has contributed her vocals to my track Cinderella. We’re in the process of releasing it and trying to break my BBC Introducing duck. The picture above shows me bellowing away while Lizzie sings.
