I was in the shower Monday morning and I can't smell the shampoo and I go, 'This is weird.' "Shower gel - nothing. It's an FCUK box set, Hanni's mum got me it for Christmas. "So I'm using that and I can't smell it, but I've never used it before so I don't know whether it's just s**t or I can't smell it." He went on: "So I get out and go, 'I'll clean my teeth now.' Can't taste any toothpaste or mouthwash.
