I laughed moobs off when I hit No1...you’ve suf­fered enough

Daily Star - - NEWS - By AN­DREW JAME­SON Down Un­der an­drew.jame­[email protected]

NICK Knowles has vowed to do­nate all roy­al­ties from his sur­prise chart hit to char­ity after “mak­ing peo­ple suf­fer” with his singing.

The 56-year-old rock­eted to number one on iTunes after pre­sen­ter Chris Moyles launched a cam­paign on his Ra­dio X Break­fast Show.

He said the news of the hit “made me laugh my man boobs off ”. And he thanked gobby host Moyles for his help and promised to give some­thing back.

He said: “When I got my let­ters from my boys in the Jun­gle, I thought they were wind­ing me up about my al­bum.

“And then when I came out and ac­tu­ally it turned out to be true,

I could not be­lieve it.”

And he added: “If there are any roy­al­ties that come out of it, they’re all go­ing to go to char­i­ties, the mil­i­tary char­i­ties

I sup­port.

“When I put the al­bum out, it was clear fairly soon that peo­ple had suf­fered enough, so I’d bet­ter give the money to char­ity.”

View­ers mocked his per­for­mance of the song Make You Feel

My Love on Wed­nes­day night’s episode.

Mu­sic bosses at Univer­sal were even thought to be ready to give the go-ahead to a sec­ond al­bum after the first’s be­lated suc­cess.

Nick, who was elim­i­nated from the show on Thurs­day, said yes­ter­day: “As if peo­ple weren’t suf­fer­ing enough al­ready, they had me singing as well.

“There were great singers in there, peo­ple from the West End and ac­tresses that had been trained to sing. Ev­ery­body was join­ing in so I was join­ing in too.”

He added: “To come out to find out that (he had been at number one) was fan­tas­tic and hi­lar­i­ous all at the same time. A fan­tas­tic laugh, it made me lit­er­ally laugh my moobs off when I came out.

“It’s bonkers, you don’t need to down­load it, you can find it in any bar­gain bin for 99p.”

One viewer had tweeted “Nick is full-on David

Brent now”, re­fer­ring to the hope­less mu­si­cal ef­forts of the Ricky Ger­vais char­ac­ter in The Of­fice.

Friends say Nick could now pack away the gui­tar for good.

A pal said last night: “Nick is a proud man. On the out­side he will ap­pear fine but he takes crit­i­cism as hard as any­one.

“It’s a shame but I’d imag­ine Nick will go back to fo­cus­ing on his telly ca­reer from now on.”

Mean­while, Nick has promised never to ap­pear just in his “budgie smug­glers” on TV again.

Nick stunned view­ers – and camp­mate Emily Atack – by strip­ping to just a pair of red pants to do chores.

He said: “Can I pub­licly apol­o­gise for the red budgie smug­glers? It was lit­er­ally all I had left to wear.”

The DIY ac­tion man re­vealed he can’t pick a Jun­gle win­ner. “I want ei­ther H (Harry) who is just the most extraordinary per­son, or I want Fleur, who is amaz­ing and a beau­ti­ful per­son.

“I’d like James (McVey) to win it too but I know he wants to get out be­cause he’s des­per­ately miss­ing his girl­friend.” Pic­ture: REX
