Q Did you watch the Royal Va­ri­ety as a child? A Yes, we watched it as a fam­ily when I was lit­tle so it has very spe­cial me­mories for me. A lot of my he­roes have per­formed on that stage at the Lon­don Pal­la­dium so it’s amaz­ing to fol­low in their foot­steps. Q Can you hint at what your rou­tine will in­volve? A It will be mis­chievous but most of all funny. There may be one or two jokes es­pe­cially for the Duke and Duchess of Sus­sex. I can’t wait to meet them. They’re the coolest roy­als. Q How ner­vous will you be on stage? A It’s go­ing to be nerver­ack­ing. Never did I ex­pect to be per­form­ing in front of the Royal Fam­ily. It’s been a great year for me and this is the ic­ing on the cake. I just hope I don’t hit the wrong but­ton and swear! Q Take That, Rick Astley and the cast of Hamilton are also tak­ing part. Who are you ex­cited about meet­ing? A I’m very ex­cited to meet Take That. I’m se­cretly hop­ing they’ll let me be the new Rob­bie Wil­liams and we can have a No.1 hit to­gether. I’ve got a great singing voice, af­ter all! And Greg Davies, who’s host­ing. I’ve al­ways loved his stand-up. Q Have the Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent judges given you any tips since your win? A Yes, I speak to Si­mon quite a lot and got in­vited to his sum­mer party, and David came to see my show at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe fes­ti­val in Au­gust. Q How has win­ning BGT changed your life? A Mas­sively! It’s opened a lot of doors for me. I’m go­ing on a UK tour next year and I’m writ­ing a book called I’m Only in It for the Park­ing. I get recog­nised a lot now, and peo­ple con­grat­u­late me on my suc­cess. I’m flat­tered by it all.

Big night out… Harry and Meghan Funny guy… Lee makes his RoyalVa­ri­ety de­butnew
