WHEN KEANE broke up in 2013, it wasn’t just the superstar piano band’s millions of fans left heartbroken. Lead singer TOM CHAPLIN spiralled back into devastating drug addiction, before getting back on the wagon, focussing on his family and writing a stunning solo album. When Keane split in 2013, it wasn’t just the superstar piano band’s millions of fans left heartbroken But songwriter TIM RICE-OXLEY – the brains behind enduring hits like Somewhere Only We Know, Bedshaped and Spiralling – disappeared from public view entirely for six years as his life fell apart. Now as the band reunite to perform at Barclaycard presents BST in Hyde Park this weekend ahead of the release of their fifth studio album in September, the pair have opened up about their private pain and how they got back together in an emotional new episode of my podcast The Dan Wootton Interview. Tim’s marriage “fell apart” just as Keane split, leaving him struggling to deal with “a lot of heartbreak and a totally new life that I hadn’t really planned for.” The famously middle-class band, Tim concedes, was the major driving factor behind his separation. Tom Chaplin spiralled back into devastating drug addiction, before getting back on the wagon, focussing on his family and writing a solo album He tells me: “You start to live independently and separate lives almost and certainly with us by the time we realised it was too late basically. ‘Keane had been such a huge part of my life – really an obsession, a lifestyle where you’re used to living out of a suitcase and eating in the hotel restaurant every morning.

Very much on my own.” It was that painful moment that has inspired Cause and Effect, a hauntingly beautiful 11-track collection of songs like Strange Room, which includes the lyric, I know what it looks like, rich kid with a good life. “That’s what this album is about,” Tim explains. “Firstly how I got there and secondly how I reacted to it. Songwriter Tim Rice-Oxley disappeared from public view entirely for six years as his life fell apart It’s something people go through married or otherwise. It’s a relationship disappearing and it has a huge impact on you.” For Tim, that meant a devastating wake-up call in 2015 when he was arrested for drink driving having driven into a ditch after a farewell party for a beloved pub in Sussex. “To say that was a low point would be an understatement really,” he says, grimacing with embarrassment about the uncharacteristic situation. “I drank way too much, I don’t know what I was doing, obviously completely idiotic behaviour, fell asleep at the wheel. “It’s just one of those things where I remember being horrifically hungover in a police cell and thinking, ‘How did this happen? How did I go from being this sort of super-sensible guy with a wife and two kids to…? “I always felt quite proud, almost a little self-satisfied with how sort of neatly arranged my life had been – successful career, nice little house in the countryside, lovely family. Tim described being in the band as an ‘obsession’ as he opened up during a recording of The Dan Wootton Interview “Suddenly you’re on your own in a police cell – separated, no career – it was pretty grim.” But there was a positive consequence from Tim’s heartbreak – he poured out all his emotions into new songs for Keane, which he presented to Tom when they met at Christmas for their first proper chat in two years. Tim is also now devoted to his daughters, explaining: “One of the good things about the whole period is it’s made me focus on being a dad. I absolutely love it and that’s very much the focal point of my life now.” That’s the same for Tom too who used “self-healing” and therapy to get clean after his post-Keane “self-destructive” relapse. He explains: “I like myself more, I’m probably a bit more outgoing and honest than I used to be. And I bring that into the world of Keane. I probably didn’t in the past, I ended up feeling isolated or not worthwhile at times.” Tom now concedes recovery will be a “lifelong process” – but when ELTON JOHN tried to help him stay clean in 2007, he rejected the legend’s advice. Meanwhile Tom admits to turning down the advice of Elton John when he tried to help him stay clean in 2007 During a meeting in Las Vegas, the Rocketman told him: “There’s a lot of in your story that remind you of me.” But Tom recalls: “I kind of wasn’t ready to hear it. Maybe he could tell that I wasn’t ready. It wasn’t until 2012 that the problems really started to resurface in a massive way. He was absolutely right.” Now committed to his wife, daughter and band, Tom is hopeful that he has “dealt with my demons of addiction for the rest of my life”. He adds: “Life doesn’t seem like the ordeal it used to feel like for me. I still have tough days and tough times and challenges but really I feel like it’s given me a really stable platform. Why would I want to go back to a mad, self-destructive existence?” That prediction provides hope Keane’s reunion will become permanent – especially seeing all the members are convinced they will not be consigned to being labelled a heritage act. Tom says: “What’s been great about it is that it’s not been a heritage thing. The album has come from a very dark, sad, beautiful energy in these songs Tim has written. In terms of the music it’s something that feels very credible and something we really wanted to say and get out there. Fans hope that Keane’s reunion will become permanent as the band say they can’t wait to get their new album out there [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN TV & SHOWBIZ” posts_category=”6″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”popular” /] “It’s not like a record that’s been made like we’re in our comfort zone and we’re just doing it to pay the bills or whatever.

JOHNNY Ball has hit back after he was accused of Islamophobia and being a climate change denier. The children’s TV legend, 81, faced a backlash from audience members who claimed he called Islam “violent” and challenged scientific opinion on climate change during a maths talk at St George’s Hall, in Bristol. Johnny Ball has hit back following a backlash from some at his maths talk However, Johnny has now slammed the reaction — saying he “doesn’t have a racial nerve in his body” and was being “sandbagged”. He told Dan Wootton on talkRADIO: “It’s really bizarre. The audience was about 25 per cent kids brought in by their families who were fans of mine. “I had to keep it simple and jolly about because there were kids in there. I really think I was being sandbagged, I don’t understand why. “My book is out there and selling very well. Chapter eight is a chapter called mathematics is never a religion. “The dark ages ceased because of Islam and its ability to convey mathematic ideas. I am incredibly supportive of them. I don’t have a racial nerve in my body, I never have had.” Johnny, the father of Zoe Ball, pictured, said he does not have a “racial nerve in his body” [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN TV & SHOWBIZ” posts_category=”325″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Defending his comments on climate change, the 2012 Strictly contestant added: “I had this globe and there’s a weather system called El Nino that causes more disruption than humans do. “Now two people walked out on that, two people dressed very lightly, I would say young pension age, I couldn’t believe it. “It is not climate change that is going to cause the end of mankind as we know it. It’s just not so. “Quite clearly because of the subsidies given to energy firms for wind farms, solar panels, not just in UK in the whole of Europe and in America, every family is poorer because of the increase in energy prices due to governments giving subsidies for these facilities whether they work or not. It’s tragic.” Johnny responded to criticism as spoke to Dan Wootton on talkRADIO Despite this, Johnny admitted he will be more careful about how he approaches the topics in the future. The dad of Strictly spin-off host Zoe Ball said: “I will steer clear of this because I don’t want to be controversial and want people to enjoy it. It’s a comedy routine. It’s a joke. “I did it because it’s Kepler with a German accent, I’ve done it for years.” Olga Alexandru was one of those who walked out of the venue and tweeted her review of the talk. She wrote: “Have to break my no-social-media-on-Monday rule to talk about the s***show that was Johnny Ball at St George’s Bristol. Johnny Ball had been accused of Islamophobic comments and denying climate change “Everything was going fine until he denied climate change and made Islamaphobic comments! We walked out. Disgusting!” Bristol’s St George’s Hall said he had apologised for the climate section. It was investigating the Islam claims.

HARDCORE Remainer Dominic Grieve today admitted he may quit the Tory party if Boris Johnson becomes PM. The former minister suggested it could be impossible for him to stay and support a Brexiteer leader. Dominic Grieve says he could leave the Tories If he did switch sides in the event of a BoJo victory, the new PM would see his Commons majority reduced to just TWO. Mr Grieve is one of a handful of Tory MPs who are pushing for a second referendum to overturn Brexit. Asked today if he could stay in the party under Mr Johnson, he told Dan Wootton on talkRADIO: “I think it may be very difficult for me to remain. “But I don’t wish to leave the Conservative Party – of which I have been a member for 47 years. “I would wait to see what he says and does, but… the reality of where we are in view of where I think he is likely to take us is going to mean I suspect it’s going to be very difficult for me to do so.” Mr Grieve, the former Attorney General, has previously threatened to back a vote of no-confidence in the new PM to block a No Deal Brexit. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN POLITICS” posts_category=”318″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] Other MPs could join him in the last-ditch bid to prevent Mr Hunt from taking us out of the EU without a deal on October 31.

THE Wanted’s Tom Parker has welcomed his first child with Kelsey Hardwick. The 30-year-old singer’s wife gave birth to a baby girl on June 30. Tom Parker and his wife have welcomed a baby girl Taking to Twitter, the former boyband member revealed that his baby girl is named Aurelia Rose. She was born at 8.30am weight 7lb. The newborn is swaddled in delicate white as she lies on a fur rug next to flowers and a heart-shaped blackboard in a picture Tom shared to announce the news. Tom and his partner got engaged in 2016 and tied the knot on July 14 last year in a romantic ceremony in the grounds of Ridge Farm in Surrey, England, surrounded by their family and closest friends. Tom had bandmates Max George and Jay McGuinness as his Ushers. “It was the best day of our lives!” he told OK! magazine at the time.   They got married last year And kept fans updated on Instagram with Kelsey’s pregnancy Kelsey added: “I’ve also always wanted to get married outside so it was perfect, and there was no time limit for how long the party could go on for. I was like, we cannot have our party stopping at 12am!” Not all of his former band mates turned up to help celebrate his big day. Siva Kaneswaran said he couldn’t make the date and Nathan Sykes ignored his email – despite the pair being invited to play the part of his ushers. Baby Aurelia is their first child He explained: “It’s weird, I emailed all the boys a few months ago and asked them to be ushers. “As we’ve not all been together since 2014, I thought my wedding might have been a nice moment for it. “Siva and Nathan said they’d like to but they didn’t know what they were doing at that time. Tom Parker said not all his Wanted bandmates made his big day “Then it got closer and I needed their suit sizes. Siva said no and Nathan didn’t reply. “It is what it is.

POP has entered an exciting era of sexual freedom and fluidity – and one artist has led the charge. Swedish superstar TOVE LO – behind some of the biggest hits of the last five years – regularly strips off to reveal her self-titled ‘disco tits’ on stage and was open about her bisexuality from the start of her career. Tove Lo says her reputation as a ‘bad girl trashy party chick who doesn’t want to be a role model’ has changed as she becomes ‘very free with her sexuality and her body and body positivity’ [iframe src=”https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2Furl%3Fq%3Dhttps%3A%2F%2Fplay.acast.com%2Fs%2Fbizarrelife%2F8ce7eff6-e255-4a85-acde-d4b6e9c4b9d2%26sa%3DD%26source%3Dhangouts%26ust%3D1562427034335000%26usg%3DAFQjCNHO0Bv_k6tRKCJeVlWA7-ahCZyqkw” /] This week in a fascinating new episode of my podcast The Dan Wootton Interview – which you can subscribe to for free on Apple podcasts or wherever you like to listen – she says her reputation as a “bad girl trashy party chick who doesn’t want to be a role model” has changed as she becomes “very free with her sexuality and her body and body positivity”. She wants the UK and US – where she now lives – to follow the lead of France where you can be “topless anywhere”. She explains: “There’s women of all ages of all different kinds of boobs and it’s just like the most relaxing feeling. “All the guys, they don’t stare – no one’s whistling, no one’s staring. That’s the place where you can be a woman and being naked without being sexualised.” Tove Lo regularly goes topless during her concerts and likes her audience to ‘obey what I’m doing and follow me if you want’ Tove regularly goes topless during her concerts and likes her audience to “obey what I’m doing and follow me if you want”. She explains: “Most women and girls have grown up and known like hide this, don’t show this, if you show this it means that you want something that you might not want and it’s your fault that someone is like grabbing you. You’re going at it in the wrong angle.” [bc_video video_id=”5574292832001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”The outrageous Tove Lo talks to Dan Wootton about her worst phone call “] During the in-depth podcast chat, Tove describes how important her liberation has been after feeling uncomfortable in her body as a teenager. She tells me: “I’m a very sexual person. On stage and in videos and everything it needs to be completely unfiltered and in any way, ‘What are people going to say about this? Is this going to upset someone? “That sometimes can make it quite dark and disturbing but that’s what I want to express in that moment and it’s kind of happy and bizarre.” She wants the UK and US – where she now lives – to follow the lead of France where you can be ‘topless anywhere’ During the in-depth podcast chat, Tove describes how important her liberation has been after feeling uncomfortable in her body as a teenager ove has found love with a New Zealand man who she describes as ‘amazing’ Tove credits her Swedish parents for never making her feel that “liking girls” was “wrong or a problem”. On her openness about her sexuality from a young age, she recalls: “I never really came out either. “When I became an artist all of a sudden people were asking me ‘are you…’ because I was making out with girls and guys in my videos. “They were like, ‘what does this mean?’ and I’m like ‘yeah I like both men and women. I guess that means I’m bisexual, yes?’ it was like that.” She adds: “I was like ‘I’m doing both!’ “That was what I thought about it and I realised how lucky I am to have that sort of experience because obviously for other people that have been raised with different views on it it’s a way harder journey to accept yourself. “I’m thankful for my environment where I grew up for that really.” [bc_video video_id=”5600514113001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Tove Lo has sex with a puppet in her weird new video for Disco Tits”] However, Tove has found love with a New Zealand man who she describes as “amazing”. She says of the concept of marriage and children: “I definitely see him in my future until we’re old and grey – but the rest of it I don’t know “It’s just like I know I want to be with him and that’s enough.” Tove is currently working with close friend DUA LIPA on her highly anticipated second album – though the pair took a weekend off to party together at Glastonbury. She says of the Brit New Rules singer: “Holy s*** what a journey she’s had – it’s such and amazing path and like well deserved. “She works harder than anyone I know honestly and I was in with her for quite some time. [article-rail-section title=”MORE TV & SHOWBIZ” posts_category=”6″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”recent” /] “She knows what she wants and it doesn’t feel like there’s that kind of second album nerves, it’s just more like fun you know having fun in the studio.” But now Tove – who describes herself as “semi-crazy” – is working on her next album with her mentor, Swedish pop God MAX MARTIN. It’s going to be another huge moment for the world’s most exciting, free-spirited popstar.
