Russell Watson's new lease of life
You have to make the most of everyday that comes along
One of the UK’s biggest selling classical artists, Russell Watson joined our sofa today to talk about his latest album, True Stories. He started as a Mancunian bolt cutter who then went on to spend 16 years at the top of the classical charts.
In the interview Russell speaks on meeting and performing for President-elect Donald trumps 15 years ago: "He had nice things to say about me so I liked him at the time." But would he perform at Donald Trumps inauguration if he gets asked? We asked him.
Russell then went on to speak on recovering from his brain tumour and his new lease of life, telling us: "Live life to the absolute fullest".
