According to Mailonline, in a second video, the famous singer commented: “This is the state of the road near where I live in Harlow and it’s been like this for ages.

“People are smashing their cars up. The other day, there was an ambulance with a burst tyre. My Ferrari can’t go through here at all!”

He went on to add: “So me and the boys thought we would come and do it ourselves. We are filling the holes while millions and millions of pounds have been spent on the M11.”

One fan commented: “Don’t hurt yourself I got tickets to see you in June.”

Another fan said: “Well said. I live in harlow and the roads are getting a joke with the amount of holes.”
