A couple of weeks ago there was a power cut, and everyone in this house was desperate. Nathan felt like his life had ended because he only had 26% on his mobile phone. Callum was over the moon because his PS was fully charged. And I have to be honest with you; I was sitting next to them and I also didn't know what to do, because I didn't have any charge on my phone either. And I thought to myself, this is absolutely ridiculous that we are so dependent on technology and the energy to survive. It turned out quite good. We had some candles in the room and we sang some old fashioned songs. It was brilliant.
