Joshua let slip that his most embarrassing celebrity moment happened with Jennifer Lopez. Joshua explained: "When I was eight. I was an extra for a movie starring Jennifer Lopez...and I didn’t know who Jennifer Lopez was. At the end of the day, Jennifer Lopez goes to give me a hug and I was like nope and ran back to my mum and dad and walked away."

He added: "I literally turned down a hug from Jennifer Lopez when I was 8 because I didn’t know who she was."

As for which song, he's most excited for fans to hear on his new EP, Joshua revealed: "I’m really excited for them to hear all of it." He then specified: "'Heaven Is You'is definitely a standout. The final product is so special to me and something I find myself wanting to listen to over and over again."

Joshua also told us who his dream collabs are. He said: "I would love to write a song with Ed Sheeran. Everyone who knows me knows that I’m the Number 1 Harry Styles fan so Harry Styles would be great. I don’t think Adele does any collaborations but Adele. I was also saying the other night Dua Lipa doesn’t miss."
