I came out on the street and I saw lots of people, and there were c ameras, technical equipment, screens and loads of lights. I was very shocked when I found out who it was.

“I couldn’t believe Aitch was filming in our area. There was a fellow who tried to get close to Aitch, but the security guards shouted at him to stand back, as he was in the shot.
