He took over DJing duties at a 21st party in a back garden in Chingford, North London.

So, the Thunders are merrily going about their own business launching a new juice bar on Belvoir Street called “Juice Zone”.

Thunder Gemma was teasing passers-by with sample drinks, when along comes only THE most talented front man from Leicestershire’s very own Kasabian 

Gemma said Tom was lovely, he came into the shop and said hi to everyone, and had a little drink“.
