Speaking to The Official Charts Company, David said: “Guys, I cannot tell you how emotional, surreal and excited I am. There’s a lot of things going on in my mind.

“The last Number 1 I had was with Born To Do It 16 years ago so to have another and to share it with so many amazing people - my friends and family and the team that worked so hard around me and all the fans who supported me over the years – that’s why it’s surreal.

"I’m seeing two generations connecting – the people who have been with me since 1999 and I’m seeing the crew who are just discovering me, both connecting on the same music, and it’s the most amazing feeling."
