James Blunt faces odd questions on plastic surgery during BBC Breakfast interview
James Blunt is doing his bit to help with public safety in New Zealand, after hilariously offering to play his music to repel anti-vax protesters.
The singer has reached out to New Zealand police to tackle the hundreds of people making their voices heard outside parliament in Wellington.
It was reported on Saturday that officers had been playing music incredibly loudly in an attempt to disperse crowds, who have called themselves Convoy for Freedom, with Barry Manilow and the Macarena on the playlist.
That could all change, though, after Blunt offered his services on Twitter.
The singer, 47, shared an article detailing the use of music as a dispersion tool, saying: “Give me a shout if this doesn't work @nzpolice.”

The gathering outside parliament has been going on for nearly a week at this point, with the crowds protesting covid restrictions in the country.
Police efforts to move them on have so far failed, but maybe a few renditions of 'You’re Beautiful' will do the trick.
At this point, Blunt has to be right up there with the funniest people on social media, and he’s amused Twitter with his witty trolling plenty of times recently – always with himself as the top target.
