David Cameron revealed tonight how he has been forced to stop listening to The Smiths because his taste in music left the band feeling embarrassed.
The Prime Minister was speaking at an event to celebrate the success of the UK music industry which has achieved its highest ever share of global sales.
Mr Cameron said The Smiths asked him to stop mentioning them, adding:
"I'm a huge music fan but obviously it's been something of a music crisis year for me because Morrissey and Johnny Marr have said I'm not allowed to listen to The Smiths any more, so I've had to find some other stuff I am allowed to listen to."
