The singer explained that he went to sleep naked and woke up in the middle of the night to ‘take a piss’ but after opening what he thought was the toilet door, he ended up locked in the corridor of the hotel.

“Suddenly the door closed and I opened my eyes and I was in the corridor, completely naked, without a key to my room”, he explained.

He recalled his panic after realising that he was caught by CCTV cameras from every angle, naked, and how he had to save himself from the embarrassing situation.

He explained that he stole a napkin from a hotel room service tray and had to take the lift down to the lobby to ask hotel staff to let him back into his room.

He described the moment one of the hotel staff saw him and recognised him as he was playing shows that weekend, to which he said to them “Please don’t f*cking tell anyone”.
