Paul joins Genevieve to reminisce about his rise to fame after winning the first series of Britain's Got Talent in 2007.

He explains how he fell in love with opera, how he flipped a coin to decide whether to apply for BGT - and why he wasn't happy with his audition that's since been watched more than 250 million times on YouTube.

Paul also talks about dealing with media storms, challenging perceptions of him and the surreal experience of seeing his life adapted on the big screen.

Plus he chats about his new album and tour, his love of photography - and explains why he needed a sick bucket when he was on The Masked Singer in Germany...
