It was rumored, many years ago, when he worked for Andrew Lloyd Webber's company that he and a very famous singer/actor had a bit of a fling. Soon after he left the company and the singer/actor fled to the States for a while.

Now I'm never one to start or spread rumours BUT, one of my many exes 'Richard' ( we all called him Dickie, Dickie by name Dickie by nature ), I digress, well he was a friend of Backstairs Billy from Buck house, well I better say no more. Lets just say there's no smoke without a little flame ( or flamer )
