Meanwhile, Ashcroft was recently forced to issue a statement after he  was accused of dropping a package of drugs from his pocket during an appearance on Soccer AM. A number of viewers shared footage of the moment on social media, forcing the ‘Bittersweet Symphony’ artist to set the record straight via Instagram.

“Number one: Cocaine and I have had no relationship for decades”, he said.
“Number two: Don’t you ever surmise what has fallen out of my pocket. And, don’t bring my children into it.”
