Preston storms out of Buzzcocks recording

Ordinary Boys frontman Samuel Preston has walked out of a recording of pop quiz Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

Ordinary Boys frontman Samuel Preston has walked out of a recording of pop quiz Never Mind the Buzzcocks.

The singer took exception when host Simon Amstell read extracts from an autobiography written by his wife, 'Big Brother' winner Chantelle Houghton.

"Preston just stormed off," said a spokeswoman for the show. "He literally walked out of the building."

Co-host Bill Bailey picked a member of the audience to take Preston's place for the remainder of the recording.

In the offending passage from Chantelle's book, 'Living the Dream', the reality star described a photo shoot where she wore clothes from Marks and Spencer in which she explained that the store had always been too expensive for her and how the photo shoot made her feel "very posh and upmarket".

The singer's brief appearance on Never Mind The Buzzcocks will form part of the new series, which begins on BBC Two on the 27th of January.
