“There’s not enough tissues,” Lewis responded before proceeding to tell Roman about his childhood.

Lewis said he was not allowed to put posters on his bedroom walls because his mum said Blu Tack would ruin them and said he had always been into music because he was “bad” at games and “rubbish” at football.

“I was a bit of a jokester, as you could probably tell,” Lewis added.
