I’m A Celebrity’s Nick Knowles looked set for a sensational musical career after leaving the jungle.
The DIY SOS presenter’s cover of Make You Feel My Love reached No.1 on iTunes after he spoke about jamming with Biffy Clyro on a London rooftop.
But his dreams may have been shattered as the Scottish band’s drummer has exposed his LIES.
Speaking on BBC Radio 1 Breakfast today, Ben Johnston insisted that they did not perform with Nick on a rooftop bar.
Ben claimed the presenter was "playing fast and loose with the truth" as he "shattered the illusion" that Nick gave to I’m A Celeb viewers.

While there is some truth in the story, Ben told host Greg James that there was a lot of fake news going around.
Addressing the wild accusations, Ben said: "He’s been a bit fast and loose with the truth there I think. There is some truth to this.
"It was more like eight years ago. It was after an award ceremony. We went back to this hotel in Soho. And we were informed Nick Knowles has bought us a bottle of champagne to celebrate on the roof.
"It was lovely we had a drink and were left. There might have been a guitar there. That’s about as much as I can give you."

Ben did confess that he has a copy of Nick’s 2017 album, Every Kind Of People, but denied claims he could become their supporting act.
Greg joked: "There’s this really good upcoming guy, his profile is gonna going through the roof, he’s really building this fan base, he’ll be ready."
Although there are no plans for Nick to join the band on stage, Ben did find a possible role for the DIY SOS presenter.
Cheeky Ben replied: "It would be quite handy if he could help us put up the stage with his amazing carpentry skills. We’ll definitely keep his hat in the ring."

The Biffy Clyro drummer and vocalist admitted Nick’s bold claims were a "half truth".
He added: "He was a nice guy, I’m not going to say anything bad about him. I don’t think its quite the Kum Ba Yah situation everyone has in their heads at the moment.
"I’m really sorry to shatter the illusion everyone has that we had a proper heavy jam with Nick Knowles because that didn’t happen I’m afraid."

Earlier this week, Nick told his fellow campmates that he did sing with the band on a Soho rooftop.
After some initial hesitation, fearing he would embarrass the band, he revealed that it was Biffy Clyro.
He said: "A couple of years ago I was playing on top of a rooftop bar in Soho with some other bands. Famous people from bands. I ended up playing with this band.
"Actually it’ll be alright they won’t mind – they’re nice lads. It was Biffy Clyro."
The band have embraced the fun, tweeting: "#BiffyClyroNotEmbarrassedTheyJammedWithNickKnowles"
