Wes Nelson has revealed the big lie he told Craig David to ‘get his foot in the door’ and land their first deal together. 

Fresh from their performance in the Love Island villa, Wes and Craig joined Lorraine to discuss their new number one single ‘Abracadabra’ as well as fame and friendships.

Wes told the ITV host: ‘Ever since we first met each other out in Ibiza, when I was supporting one of Craig’s shows, I actually lied to Craig and said that I had written him a song at that point – just to get my foot in the door. 

‘I didn’t want to wait too long. Craig is a busy man so I said “I’ve got a song ready”.

Craig went on to speak about ‘if you become friends it is a real win’, with Wes replying: ‘Oh wow Craig just said he is my friend’

Lorraine then challenged Craig and Wes to a round of blind karaoke. Wes looked on helplessly as Craig sang the lyrics to Kylie ‘I Should Be So Lucky’. 

Last week, Wes and Craig scooped up the Number 1 spot for their track Abracadabra on the Official Big Top 40.

Elsewhere, Craig and Wes are set to perform at TS5 Festival London at Drumsheds in March, before Wes goes on his first European tour in May.

It comes after Wes and Craig made a surprise appearance on Love Island All Stars.

The villa rewinded to four years ago as Anton Danyluk, 29, wouldn’t contain his excitement after he was reunited with Craig.

The DJ, singer and songwriter, 42, made a special appearance as he provided tunes for the iconic islanders – and Anton struggled to contain his emotion once again.

When Anton could barely keep himself together after he received a text reading: ‘Islanders, It’s time to get glam because tonight the villa will host a VIP performance from an International Superstar. #Rewind #FillMeIn’. 

The villa went wild, as super fan Anton screams: ‘Craig David, Craig David, Craig David!’   

As he gets ready for his big reunion Anton asks the girls for some bronzer, with Georgia telling him: ‘I can’t believe I’m having this conversation with my man’.

Wes told the ITV host: 'Ever since we first met each other out in Ibiza, when I was supporting one of Craig's shows, I actually lied to Craig and said that I had written him a song at that point - just to get my foot in the door.'

‘I’m only doing it because it’s a big night,’ he tells her. ‘Of course babe, Craig’s coming’ Georgia quips.

Craig took no time to acknowledge his die-hard fan as the singing sensation shook his hand almost instantly after he started singing.

During the Islanders epic dancing session, Anton could be seen beaming from cheek to cheek as he was reliving his dream session from 2019.

He could be seen jumping up and down as he once again couldn’t control his emotions or take his eyes of his icon.

Wes also made a shock appearance as he starred along side the Seven Days singer.

Craig has spoken about his superfan before, revealing on the Jonathan Ross Show in 2019 that he met Anton shortly after Love Island whilst they were both out in Ibiza.

Describing the Islander as a ‘lovely guy,’ Craig said: ‘[Anton] came out to show love and he was the same […] but really humble. He was like ‘listen Craig, I know everyone’s sort of saying I shed a tear but I’m just a huge fan of you and I just had to tell you I just love your music”.’

Anton has also gushed about meeting his idol, recalling their first meeting whilst recently rewatching clips from his first stint on Love Island for a social media post with his mum Sherie Ann .

‘Oh, I’ve got goosebumps. I love him,’ he said whilst watching Craig’s original villa performance. ‘I just love him. I can’t believe I’m dancing like that to be fair.’

He also revealed how he had an unexpected interaction with Craig after the performance, when he was called to the Beach Hut and he bumped into the musician on the way.

‘[They want] your reaction straight away in the moment,’ he explained. ‘So I go up to the beach hut and as I came through the bedroom doors, Craig David’s standing there.’

Anton said Craig ‘smiled and he put his fist out,’ adding: ‘I fist-bumped him and then ran back.

‘And then went up to the Beach Hut. It was mad but he obviously appeared the fact that… he could see my reaction.’

Asked if he would feel the same again if he reunited with Craig, Anton told his mum: ‘Oh, yeah! Absolutely. I think he’s a great artist. His music’s amazing. I love the way he’s turned his career around.’
