"I filled out a form for a TV show. And then six months later, I was in one of the biggest bands in the world. It's just weird."

The 'Flicker' hitmaker - who released his new single 'Nice To Meet Ya' this week - recently admitted he still doesn't see himself as a "superstar".

He said: "I can live a normal life. I'm a chilled-out fella but it was frustrating being hidden away. You had a fear of going out cos you'd get stopped every five seconds."
