Roman said, “When I was a kid, I was lucky enough to see fame on the level of great people in terms of my godfather and my parents.

“You’ve got one level like my mom and dad, which is recognized in restaurants and all that sort of thing, but then fame on the George Michael level, I’d never want that.

“If my kids wanted to be artists one day, I’d support them, but personally that level of fame doesn’t appeal to me.

‘I’m not doing this job to be famous; I’m sure it doesn’t interest me.
