Scott Interview

Have you ever been heartbroken?
Yes. No question about it. When my girlfriend finished with me, I lost it. I couldn't handle it, in fact I burst blood vessels in my eyes cos I cried so much. We were in Sweden and I was crying so much I couldn't see. About an hour later I looked in the mirror and my eyes were all bloodshot and I'd burst the blood vessels under my eyes. Rich came up to me to try and comfort me but I tried to hit him cos I wanted to be on my own. It wasn't a good day.

Blimey, then what happened?
We all did a bungee jump and I said to the guy, 'I don't care if the cord breaks when I jump.' I just wanted to die cos I felt so bad. I was a mess - I nearly fell apart but now I'm totally over this girl. Totally over her. I won't tell you her name cos I don't think would be fair.

Have you got a girlfriend right now?
No, but that's what I want. Before this year finishes, I want Five to be massive and I want to fall in love and have a special girlfriend.

Have you ever tried to chat up a famous girlie?
No...not really! I get on well with N-Tyce and All Saints and Lene from Aqua is a very, very nice girl. We get on well together but I can't talk about that.

Go on tell us…
We met one night and I talked to her for hours. She was a very nice girl and that's all there is to it.

Did you kiss her?
No! Well only on the cheek but she was lovely.

Do you fancy her?
Don't ask me that. No...I don't know. She's a nice a girl. Let's leave it there.

Have you ever said I love you and never meant it?
No. Never. I was talking to Rich about this. We get girls yelling, 'I love you,' and he didn't know what to say back to them cos it sounds false to say, 'I love you too.' You can't tell them you love them cos you don't know them. So now we just thank them.

If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?
I get in really bad moods and I pick fights with the others when I'm tired. Yesterday, I asked Rich for a battery and he wouldn't give it to me so we had a big row about it. Then I went off on one cos Rich wanted to wear my jacket, but then he left it in the dressing room so I didn't have one. I'm the moodiest bloke in the world in the mornings.

Have you always been like that?
Yeah, especially with my family. The other night my dad phoned me and I wanted to go to bed but he said, 'You don't have time for us any more.' So I said, 'Dad, let me go to bed,' and he was like, 'Don't get an attitude with me.' We had a big row on the phone. It wasn't really fair of me, it was just that I was so tired. I shouldn't take it out on my family or friends.

How would you describe your fame?
Hard work, dedication, early mornings, the best laugh in the world, photo shoots, people screaming at you and eating at odd times.

If Five split what would you do?
I'd sort my head out and then I'd try and be a solo singer. I'd also like to do a bit of acting. I went to stage school so I can do a bit of everything.

Were you bullied cos you went to stage school?
No, which is quite surprising cos I live in a rough area. Everyone knows how to handle themselves round my way but I didn't get picked on cos I'm well hard - that's a joke cos I'm not at all.

Are you mega-ambitious?
Yeah, I used to say to people, 'I know I'll be famous', there was never any question in my mind. If I hadn't made it in Five I'd have tried until I was 97 to be a star. I'm a loud person and a show-off!

Do you think people can be too famous?
Maybe, but Five won't cos we thrive off the pressure. We love it. We can't get enough.

If you weren't in Five what band would you want to join?
None of them.

What about Boyzone?
No way! I couldn't handle it. Everyone's the same as everyone else in Boyzone. They're not boring blokes but it's always the same old thing with them isn't it? I don't think I would fit in with them? They do a totally different thing to us - we're very different and they're, how can I put it, always doing the same thing.

What would you most like people to say about you?
I'm not much bothered, If someone's got a strong opinion, especially when they don't know me, they're bound to be wrong.
