A fan of Matt Willis tells Top Of The Pops Online that the former Busted star came to their rescue after a man gave some grief to fans waiting outside his apartment across from the offices Matt was at to get autographs from the singer.
“He asked Matt if he was responsible for us. We said no, Matt said yes, and tried to be diplomatic, saying that we were fans and we weren’t doing any harm,” the fan explained. “But the other guy wasn’t backing down and got really abusive, so Matt upped the ante slightly.”
Willis then refused to back off until the man left his fans alone and stopped bothering them.
