Previously asked by Radio X's Johnny Vaughan if he could give any hints on special guests, he said: "Look, I'm not [announcing] any special guests. I'm selling them on my own. Anyone who wants to play with me, fine, but they aint selling me tickets. I'm selling tickets on my own as a singular person and then after that I'm getting as many guests as I can!"

He added: "Listen kids. We don't mess about here. If you wanna come in, get tickets and we'll get some guests in.”

Last year saw Jamie T’s release his album, The Theory of Whatever, which included the singles St George Wharf Tower and The Old Style Raiders and reached the top of the UK charts.

Speaking about scoring his first ever UK No.1 album, he said: "It's wonderful, mate. It's a wonderful thing for my family and my mum and my dad and just to know it.

"It's a wonderful thing at this age. I'm 36 now. I'm fat and old in music so to have it at this point is a wonderful thing."
