Alexander said: “We all piled into a pub. I had no clue where it was, apart from somewhere in London, because we had had a few beers by then.

“There was a three-piece band playing and we were all there, the owners, the staff, the players.

“David, Gary, Phil, Ryan and Nicky were so happy.

“They had beers with the lads, congratulated everybody and praised our performance. Then they all joined in as we started singing.

“And they gave a great rendition of Dirty Old Town. It was brilliant.”
