Video transcript

JAMES BLUNT: And I was doing a bridging loan to buy a new house. And at one stage, I was getting no sleep. And I started praying. I'm not a religious person, but I did turn skywards and say, dear, God, help me out of this huge, huge issue of this socking great loan.

Now, God doesn't normally deal with high-end loans to the well-off, but he did. God the next day sent someone who put a bid and offered to buy my house. And that person was Boris Johnson.

- No!

- Boris Johnson bought your house?

JAMES BLUNT: Six weeks later, he bailed out.
