“I was definitely the one that made the first move. We found a text thread from back then with some of the first conversations we would have with each other and it was always me first. ‘Hi, how are you?’, ‘Good morning, how are you?’, ‘Hi’, ‘Hi’, ‘Hi’… It was always me first sending the message. He was very shy at that time. I was really curious about him, I remember that clearly."
“When I got back (from India), we had been talking for a year or so. I was back and forth between Leeds and Leicester because my family were moving down there. I was quite motivated with music and would get up early in the mornings to practice. We’d call each other every morning to get each other up.”
“I had said to him, 'You’ve just been in India training intensely for 9 months, you cant lose it when you get back.' I was also practicing singing at the time. It was a motivation thing. We’d motivate each other.”
