Patrick Wolf claimed he could hear former prime minister Margaret Thatcher “through his drainpipe”, when he lived in a posh London flat.
The singer was speaking on NME Radio when he revealed he once lived upstairs from the former Conservative leader and her daughter Carol.
“The night I moved in and I had a shower I started hearing this noise,” the singer told DJ Iain Baker. “At first I thought I was on drugs, but then I realised I wasn’t on drugs, it was Margaret Thatcher! I could hear her through my drainpipe!”
The singer added that while he lived in the upscale flats on the city’s South Bank he also had Paul McCartney‘s ex-wife Heather Mills McCartney as a neighbour.
“I lived like a rock star and blew all my money in a year,” declared Wolf, who said he now lives in a less star-studded block in the same area.
