Speaking to host Clara Amfo, Miguel joked that he would “definitely” be making a visit to the Kent town of Tunbridge Wells after the rendition. Watch his performance below.

Meanwhile, Slaves were recently involved in a feud with Sleaford Mods, which started when the latter band described their counterparts as “a pile of shit”.

Frontman Jason Williamson said: “They’re doing my pose in photos, ripping us off. We met them at Beacons festival [in Yorkshire] last year and they asked if me and Andrew [Fearn, bandmate] would be interested in writing something for the album, and I said no. They looked like a [mid-’80s jazz pop outfit] Matt Bianco sort of thing, and now they’re trying to play this working class game. I think they’re fucking appalling.”

Slaves will tour the UK during November, playing the following dates:

Bristol Anson Rooms (November 14)
Cardiff Student Union (15)
Portsmouth Pyramid (16)
Norwich Waterfront (18)
Glasgow O2 ABC (19)
Newcastle University (20)
