Quizzed by another if his Brummie accent is any good, he said: "It's biblical"

Meanwhile, the team behind Peaky Blinders have announced an official festival for 2019.
The Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival will take place in September and combine music, fashion, theatre and a museum to offer fans an immersive event in the home of the real-life Brummie gang.
The festival - which is co-curated by Cillian Murphy and Peaky Blinders creator Stephen Knight, will take place over two days in the historic streets, factories and warehouses of Digbeth, Birmingham and include music from across five stages with Primal Scream, Slaves and Nadine Shah to perform.
The event will also host performances from Anna Calvi (who scores the series) Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Slaves plus features a DJ set from The Streets' frontman Mike Skinner - with a very special secret guest still to be announced.
The Rock 'N' Roll Star will return to Manchester for a homecoming show at the O2 Ritz on 21 September - the day of his 47th Birthday.
He'll be joined by Sam Fender, and the pair will both be celebrating important releases, with Gallagher's Why Me? Why Not album out on 20 September and Fender's much anticipated debuted album, Hypersonic Missiles, being released the week before.
We'll be given one special listener the chance to win the last pair of tickets to the gig.
