"To my right is the most recent man to be banned from Hyde Park and its surrounds. "

Conversations and riffs

Elis larged it at the Blur concert in Hyde Park and can only remember two songs they played. He also met Blur producer Stephen Street at the back stage party and got to ask him the two questions he's always wanted to ask him but can't remember the answers.

John tells the tale of how when he was 12 he starred in a BHS commercial. He has managed to find the footage from the early 90s, which features his innovative dancing, and they put it out on the show's Vine & Twitter feeds along with John - as he is now - recreating it.
