Every Wednesday afternoon we ask our favourite celebrities to tell us the songs that make up the soundtrack to their lives, from their first breakup track to their future wedding song. This week, Made in Chelsea star, Ollie Locke…

The first song I ever bought…

How deep is your love by the Bee Gees. I was on a school ski trip and brought the tape at Geneva airport. It was one of the most exciting moments of my life up until that point. I was very young.”

 

The first album I was obsessed with…

“Spice Girls, Wannabe. It was awesome. I was probably about nine and listened to it over and over again. I remember having it on cassette on my ghetto blaster, how retro!”

 

The song that reminds me of my best friend…

Say a Little Prayer by Aretha Franklin. My friend Louis and I passed our driving tests within days of each other. We immediately danced around to this song after passing and continued to play it in car journeys for weeks after. This song will always remind me of that time.”

 

My first breakup song…

Your Winter by Sister Hazel. It’s on the 10 Things I Hate About You soundtrack, which remains one of my favourite films. I’m such a sucker for a breakup song. I love them. If I’ve broken up with someone I’ll spend a week in bed listening to the same song.”

 

The song that sums up my teenage years…

“So many! Sweet Home Alabama is one, but You’ve Got It Bad by Usher is a big one. I went to boarding school in Hampshire from 8-18years old, and we all had completely different taste in music so would each take turns to play a song in our dorms. Mine was always You’ve Got It Bad.”

 

The song I’ll play for my first dance at my wedding…

Everything by Michael Buble. I mean, that just sums up everything, doesn’t it? Ideally I’d like him to perform it live but hear he charges around a £1 million per gig…

 

The most embarrassing or surprising song on my iPod…

Combine Harvester by The Wurzels. I went to an agricultural college and if you didn’t have the discography of The Worzles you were simply a loser. I am a lot more country than people think.”

The song I wish I could play…

“With or Without You by U2. It’s just a classic, isn’t it? And it also reminds me of Ross and Rachel from Friends.”

Made in Chelsea is on Mondays, 10pm, E4
