We interviewed a brand spankin’ new boy band today.
People, meet Rixton.
Namely, the boys are Jake Roche, Charley Bagnall, Lewi Morgan and Danny Wilkin, they all totally play their own instruments and write their own songs.
We also noticed that they are all rather good looking.
However, Jake might just look familiar – he certainly did to us.
This is his Ma:
And this is his Pa:
You might just recognize them.
Yep, it only turned out that Rixton’s lead singer is the blimmin’ son of Eastenders’ Shane Richie and notoriously Loose Woman Coleen Nolan!
It blew our minds, we can assure you.
21-year-old Jake has been in the showbiz game for a while now, acting in all sorts of shows like Emmerdale before he turned his hand to music.
He is also keen to distance himself from his Ma and Pa’s fame, saying that he ‘doesn’t want to ride off the back of them’.
True to say, he didn’t mention his famous folks once in our interview until we found out for ourselves.
Plus, Rixton have done everything themselves – releasing covers online which ended up garnering the attention of Scooter Braun – yep, as in Justin Bieber’s manager.
The band are now tipped for huge things and are gigging all over the place – last night London and tonight they are headed to paris!
They’ve opened for Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande over in the US and already have a massive fanbase of the boy band essential – hysterical screaming girls.
And just for the record, Jake doesn’t know who killed Lucy Beale.
We know because we asked.
And if you want to get to know the chaps even more than you will be chuffed to hear that they just so happened to take our Six Second Interview.
We think this will provide just the deep insight that you were after!
