Keith Chegwin: 'Phil Collins let me sing his first song'

Phil Collins let Keith Chegwin sing the first song he ever wrote.

Cheggers, who appears in Ricky Gervais’ new sitcom Life Is Short, revealed that the Genesis star penned a tune when they were kids. And Cheggers, 54, sang it in a show at the Barbara Speake Stage School in London.

He said: "I was in a school play and I was singing the first song that Phil Collins ever wrote. Yeah, true story". "I went to the Barbara Speake Stage School and his mother ran the school". "Phil was there too and he wrote a song and I sang it". "So the first character or part that I had in the show was singing a Phil Collins number, the first song that he ever wrote and I’ve still got a copy of it!"
