Roman said: ‘When I was a child, I was fortunate to see fame at the level of big people in terms of my godfather and my parents.

‘You have one level being my mum and dad, which is being recognized at restaurants and all those types of things but then fame at George Michael’s level, I wouldn’t want that ever.

‘If my children one day wanted to become an artist I would back them but personally that level of fame doesn’t appeal.

‘I am not doing this job to become famous; I know for a fact it doesn’t interest me.
