Craig David lives in hotel
Craig David lives in an airport hotel.
The '7 Days' hitmaker checked into the Sofitel London Heathrow last September for a short-term stay away from his Miami home while promoting his comeback, but has repeatedly extended his visit after experiencing a career resurgence and insists his room at the establishment - which costs from around £135 to £1400 a night and is located next to the airport's terminal five - is the "perfect" place to record new music.
He said: "The thing is, as big a house as you could buy, it's perfect in there, it's got a bathroom, I've got my bedroom, I've got my little set-up with my studio and I'm getting as much done as I would if I was in some huge place with square footage and gardens."
The 35-year-old star enjoys meeting his fans and is happy to mingle with them before and after his gigs.
He told GQ magazine: "I went out to experience what Glastonbury is like because I didn't want to just be in the backstage.
"So I'm out there with my boots on, going through, doing my thing, and some people recognised me.
"There came a point where I had to go back because it was getting a bit of top because there were so many people and it started a ripple effect.
"I'll stay as long as I possibly can because generally I can't get enough of it, man.
"It's the first opportunity his time around that I can respond to people."
