When asked what band they’d get in a fight with Adelekan said: “Beady Eye!” before Mount chastised him. He said: “Gbenga! You’ve got to think about it!”
Adelekan persisted saying: “Liam can say we look like a University Challenge team or something.” Mount added: “What’s happened to your media training?! This is going on the website! They’re going to pick out that one line…”
Mount also admitted that he used to get compared to Jonathan Creek star Alan Davies by a girl he once fancied.
