A FAMOUS singer asked for all of the backstage toilet seats at Glasgow's OVO Hydro to be replaced before they would sit on them. 

Peter Duthie, chief executive of the SEC and the Hydro, appeared on The Go Radio Business Show podcast yesterday and revealed the unusual ask.

He told how the star, which he did not name, made the request after being asked "what's the biggest diva demand you've ever had?" 

He said: "Well probably the biggest diva request, and I'll not name the artist, was every toilet seat backstage had to be replaced before they were sat on." 

Hosts Sir Tom Hunter and Lord Willie Haughey laughed, before asking: "Was that Kevin Bridges?"

But Mr Duthie replied: "It certainly wasn't Kevin. Kevin, as I'm sure you'll be aware, has a whole series of shows with us later on this year and has sold a phenomenal number of tickets over the years."

We previously reported that the girl group Little Mix were commemorated for their record-breaking shows in Glasgow.

The OVO Hydro awarded the pop trio with a special poster on April 27 after their first of two shows in Glasgow.

The gesture marks Little Mix becoming the band that has played most dates and the group with the highest all-time ticket sales at the venue.

Meanwhile, the Hydro was the first arena in the world to achieve A Greener Arena certification.

Staff worked hard to not only reduce emissions but cut out single plastics, enhance local biodiversity, and promote people, inclusion and wellbeing at the venue, which has a maximum capacity of 14,300.
