He's been so unlucky recently

But he said that his team were “amazing” and wouldn’t let the setback stop them touring their glittering All Night Long show.

“The bus caught fire,” Brendan told the Star. “It was quite horrific.”

And he said the team dealt with the danger bravely.

“All of them were standing there in their underpants in the middle of the night and had to go to Tesco to get a change of clothing so they could go to work the next day,” he said.

“It just shows how amazing they are. But we are okay. The show goes on.

“We had two shows that day. I would not have been surprised if they had said, ‘we are a bit in shock, we are going to have to stay off… you have to do it without us,’ but they didn’t.”

And he added: “I work with the best.”
