“That,” responded Harry, “is my sibling.”
Best usage of a Freedom pass: Ronnie Wood
Former Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood made the most of his over-60s public transportation discount rate by capturing television to the O2.

The star later on reunited with his other band, The Faces, to end the program – however not prior to he provided finest British male to Stormzy, using what seemed a set of intense yellow cleaning up gloves.

(NB: With prominent albums en route from Adele, Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie, they most likely will).
