‘Keano got me so drunk I woke up in a Hollyoaks girl’s bedroom

Biz caught up with him on his return.

It was at the start of this year. I just wanted to be a priority — at that stage of the game I had to be. If I wasn’t, I would have rotted on Sony and nothing would have happened.

I would just have been left to get on with it while ONE DIRECTION ruled the planet. Which is brilliant for them — I’m so proud of them — but I needed to be a bit selfish. I asked Sony to let me go and they said OK.
