After speculation began about the reasons behind his exit, the ‘Pop Idol’ winner played down his “undramatic” exit on Chris Evans’ BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show.

“Here’s the thing. I’m absolutely dandy, thanks. It’s all very undramatic, really,” he said.

“I’ve done my statement and others can say what they want to say. I never read what they say anyway.”
