Not a lot of people know this but I’m very good at… producing music. It’s my serious talent. I am also really good at hoovering and find it strangely therapeutic creating football pitch patterns on my carpet.

My best friend is… my mum, sister and wife, then the band.

My nickname is… D Dawg, because I am so ungangster. I gave myself the nickname.

The bravest thing I’ve ever done is… skydiving in Australia six years ago. We were there recording an album and we all did it. I was so scared of my parachute not opening – well, scared of everything really!

My favourite TV show is… Family Guy – it stops my mind racing at night. I struggled to sleep for a while and Family Guy makes me fall asleep. I also love A League Of Their Own with Jack Whitehall.

I’ve played football with Jack a lot and he’s good. I still play every Friday night and when I was 14 I was offered a contract with Birmingham City.

My perfect evening is… going to a pub on the river or eating nice food in front of a fire or in sunshine and chatting over a beer. I also love it when me and my mates play golf together then meet the girls afterwards.

I would like to say sorry to… everyone for not texting or emailing them back. I read texts and then just forget. I am never too busy for my mates, though, so I am sorry in advance and in the past for my inept communication skills.

The one thing I would change about myself… is being too hard on myself. Also my toes, which are always black from playing football.

The best thing my parents taught me… was an inner belief, no matter what. My mum was a 60s hippie chick and introduced me to really cool music like Pink Floyd and Bruce Springsteen. She’d say, “Always try.”

The last time I cried was… on The Voice. I wear my heart on my sleeve and take on a lot of other people’s pain. Some of the kids have been through a lot and we had a powerful moment recently that made me cry.

The first record I ever bought was… actually bought for me. It was a cassette of Tunnel Of Love by Bruce Springsteen. It’s not good for my image but I like… beer!

My greatest weakness is… my kindness – that people often mistake for weakness. I always want everybody to be OK – especially my wife, my sister and my mum – but people take advantage of my kindness. Luckily I have a group around me who point it out when they do.

If I could pass any law it would be… you have to make one person smile a day. My grandad said, “The day’s worthwhile when you make someone smile.” When I moved to London, I couldn’t believe people weren’t as friendly as they are up North. It doesn’t cost anything to have manners.

I drive… an eco-friendly car now but I used to drive an Aston Martin.

The shop I can’t walk past is… a wine and cheese shop and the Rag & Bone shop – I like a good clothing shop and the rock’n’roll look.

The most expensive thing I’ve ever splashed out on… apart from my house and cars, was an engagement ring. Oh, and a studio I’m having built in my garden.

My worst job was… being a waiter. It just sucks. I couldn’t be bothered with customers who are rude to the staff.

My perfect Sunday is… a nice Sunday roast, then going down to the pub on the river and watching the sun go down on the Thames.

My favourite place in Britain is… Bolton – it’s where I am from, it has a lot of memories. I also love the chilled vibes of Cornwall and the Cotswolds.

My last holiday was… in LA. I had two weeks of holiday then a week writing songs, meeting people and producing.

I’m currently reading… The Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey. I am also very interested in the brain and my favourite book is Mixing With Your Mind by Michael Paul Stavrou. I suffer from anxiety and I believe the power of the mind is super-amazing, so I learned a lot from his book.

The best day of my life was… Well, my wedding, obviously, but also meeting Bruce Springsteen when he was doing a book signing.

If I had half an hour left on Earth I’d… go to the bank, get all my money out and take out a loan because I know I wouldn’t have to pay it back, and I would give loads of homeless people something awesome, then I would gather my family and take them to a villa in Spain for us all to be together.
