But DIY SOS star Nick Knowles had a story that may even top Redknapp’s, revealing he has once played a set with rock band Biffy Clyro.

Chatting to Inbetweeners star Emily Atack, the 56-year-old explained “I’ve always played. My brother’s a really good musician and I’ve always played along with him and a couple of years ago somebody heard me, I was playing on a rooftop bar in Soho with some other bands…
“Somebody from a record company saw me doing it and I got a phone call saying, ‘I’m from Universal, want to do an album?’”
Revealing a little more in the Bush Telegraph, he added, “It’s probably best not to say who they are because it would be embarrassing for them more than anything else…” before adding “Actually, they won’t mind, they’re nice lads, it was Biffy Clyro…”
