But when asked how he reacts when his audience start shouting things at him, Joe admitted he quite enjoys it.

He then added: “My gigs are a very happy, safe space usually, it’s generally a nice vibe.”

Joe went on to talk a bit about his tour, saying it’s his ‘favourite thing he’s ever made.”

The star revealed: “It involves a stunt I was working on for four years, it got out of hand and I ended up in trouble with the police, MPs being cross with me, headlines all around the world.

“The stunt was done in secret so I talk about it in the show.”
