with the Enemy?
(the producers of Big Brother) rang and asked if we
would be interested in taking part in a show called
Singing with the Enemy to be shown on BBC Three. They
sent someone to one of our gigs and we had tests and all
sorts of stuff. We felt this was a real risk. I hate the
way Christianity is portrayed in the media – you are

talking about God.
are not Christians will not be able to relate to this –
we’ve done what God asked us to do. We are not
megastars. We work hard and put God first.
There is a
passage in the Bible that reads: The thing you should
want most is God’s kingdom and doing what God wants.
Then all these other things you need will be given to
you. (Mat 6:33).
