To celebrate his 30th birthday, let's turn back the clock to when the Geordie musician took us through some of the lingo from his hometown.

Sam Fender is very much one of Britain's biggest stars of the last decade. Both of his studio albums, Hypersonic Missiles and , Seventeen Going Under, made it to Number 1 in this country, and he was smashing it last year with majestic appearances at Reading and Leeds and TRNSMT festivals and his own massive headline show at Newcastle's St James' Park.

On the occasion of Sam's 30th birthday (he was born on 25th April 1994), we thought we'd relive the moment that the musician took us back to his roots.

Here's wee Sammy Fender taking us through the highlights of GEORDIE SLANG.

  • If you "divvina" something, what does it mean?
  • If Sam says he's "gannin' yem", should you get another round in?
  • If you were to come across Sam in his "scratcha", should you avert your eyes?
  • Should you disturb a Geordie if they're "in a fettle"?

Let Sam Fender take you through some of the more familiar Geordie expressions - and some terms that he reckons must have come "from the 1800s or something".

And he's ably assisted by his excellent drummer Drew Michael, who chips in with a few salty phrases himself.
