Unheard chat with tragic Hughes is shared by DJ pal

By Francesca Gosling

Radio presenter Christian O'Connell has shared "his last gift" from late actor Sean Hughes in the form of an interview he recorded with the star more than five years ago.

The Absolute Radio host found the previously unreleased recording after hearing the news of his friend's death this week and has now shared it in the form of a podcast entitled Sean Hughes Unheard.

The 40-minute interview sees former Never Mind The Buzzcocks captain Hughes, who died at the age of 51, detail his childhood love for the Bay City Rollers and comedian Richard Pryor, as well attending an Irish public school as a boy with a Cockney accent.
