DJ Scott Mills, 46, has reflected on his and co-host Chris Stark's interview with Prince William, 38, and Kate Middleton, 38, which saw him get a rare insight into the royal couple’s private life. Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk about his decision to stop smoking for 28 days as part of the Stoptober campaign, the star admitted the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were a bit “taken aback” by his line of questioning when they appeared on his BBC Radio 1 show in 2017.
Scott divulged: “They’re not normal, they don’t have a normal life, but they were so… because we just asked them.
“We were like, ‘We’ve got one chance here, this isn’t going to happen again. It might happen again, but it won’t be for some years’, so we were just like, ‘What boxsets do you watch? What do you wear at home?’
“And I think they were a little bit taken aback but they were definitely honest.
“I asked, ’Do you wear chinos all the time?’ And he was like, ‘No, of course I don’t, I just wear a tracksuit like everyone else’ and they don’t speak like that, you don’t hear that.”

Scott then revealed he also had some intriguing conversations with William and Kate off-air.
The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant discovered that William was a big fan of a feature from his show, Innuendo Bingo, which involves celebrity guests trying not to laugh at clips of cheeky innuendos from TV and radio with their mouths full of water.
He continued: “And then off-air was interesting because William said to Kate with me there, ‘By the way, I love Innuendo Bingo,’ and I went, ‘Do you?!’
“And he was like, ‘Yeah it’s my favourite thing,’ and I was like, ‘Oh okay’ and then Kate goes, ‘Darling, what’s Innuendo Bingo?’ And he was like, ‘I’ll have to explain it to you later!’
