Listen to the full interview below from 05 February at 11:30:


Danny and Calum Scott relive his Britain's Got Talent moment where Simon Cowell was harsh to his sister and if he ever got the chance to sit down and confront Simon about it.

After a massive year, they spoke about his latest Spotify numbers and how to remain humble and grounded with success.

The conversation got really deep as Danny took him back in time to a place where he was abandoned and shunned by his best mates because he was gay. Did those friends ever apologise about it?

Did any of those mates had contacted him to apologise or to talk about it?

Take a listen to the interview below as they open up about more, including his latest single,’ Rise’.

Released in October, “Rise” finds Calum bringing his warm yet powerful vocals to a majestic sound 

'‘Rise' celebrates overcoming, defeating the odds, and prevailing despite the obstacles or the knock-backs you face along the way,” says Calum. 

“We’ve all faced it during our lifetimes: feeling demotivated or uninspired, feeling like life is out to get you, that it’s easier to stay on the ground when life throws its punches. I wanted to write a song that would empower people to chase down their dreams and to try to embrace life, no matter what they are going through or what their circumstances are. We all have the opportunity to do it our way, to put our best foot forward and to rise.”
