During the cosy concert, Faith revealed she had initially avoided tie-ups with corporations because she didn’t feel comfortable with using her music “to sell things”, but Skoda was an exception because “I feel like a Skoda myself”.

Looking every bit the star on stage, she clarified: “When I was at school people used to laugh at Skodas. People used to laugh at me, too. But now I think some Skodas look pretty cool.”
