Singer-songwriter Sam Fender was 'absolutely hanging' on BBC Breakfast this morning (8 October) due to celebrating yesterday's huge news of Newcastle United owner, Mike Ashley, selling the club. Watch below:
The 'Hypersonic Misiles' singer has never kept it a secret that he's a huge Newcastle United Football Club fan and, like most fans last night, went and had an absolute brilliant night out.
However, the 28-year-old is probably the only fan that had to appear on BBC's breakfast show the following morning.
Sam said: "We did Jules Holland then went straight to Saint James's and my saxophone player, Johnny, got on the statue and started playing local hero.
"Five thousand Geordies started singing along because Ashley's out.
"I did about a thousand selfies, got proper mobbed but everyone was absolutely class and they gave us a lot of cans and I'm hung over.
"I'm really really hungover," he repeated: "These things happen don't they?"
Social media users were largely loving how the Geordie singer spoke so openly about his hangover.
One user wrote: "Poor boy is seriously struggling here. Fair play."
A second added: "'I'm really hungover, like, really really hungover' ha ha.
"Love the lad. He's class."
"He's a character mind," another user commented.
A fourth user concluded: "Brilliant, he's as rough as. #drymouth.
"Fair play for not crying off."
BBC Sport reported that the Saudi Public Investment Fund will provide 80% of funds for the £300 million deal and becomes the majority owner of Newcastle U.F.C.
It comes as unbelievable news for supporters of the club who wanted Mike Ashley out, pretty much as soon as he took over in 2007.
The Premier League, Newcastle United Football Club and St James Holdings Limited have today settled the dispute over the takeover of the club by the consortium of PIF, PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media.

It was reported that Saudi Arabia came to a resolution regarding a piracy dispute with beIN Sports, which owns rights to show Premier League matches in the Middle East.
"The Premier League, Newcastle United Football Club and St James Holdings Limited have today settled the dispute over the takeover of the club by the consortium of PIF, PCP Capital Partners and RB Sports & Media," reads the Premier League statement.
"Following the completion of the Premier League's Owners' and Directors' Test, the club has been sold to the consortium with immediate effect.
"The legal disputes concerned which entities would own and/or have the ability to control the club following the takeover. All parties have agreed the settlement is necessary to end the long uncertainty for fans over the club's ownership.
"The Premier League has now received legally binding assurances that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will not control Newcastle United Football Club. All parties are pleased to have concluded this process which gives certainty and clarity to Newcastle United Football Club and their fans."
