WATCH: Loyle Carner & Tommo support the #BestManProject

Your favourite musician and top beach fighter, Loyle Carner, joins the #BestManProject to ask: why save it for a wedding to be a really great mate? 

I trust Tommo with all of my stuff, be it good or bad. But also, with all that knowledge that he has of me, he still wants to be my friend 

Loyle Carner

Next up in the Best Man Project film series: BRIT Award nominated musician Loyle Carner and his friend Tommo talk beach fighting, hair products and being really great mates…

Speaking about the Best Man Project to Noisey, Loyle said: “Talk whenever you feel comfortable. You don’t want to feel like you’re under scrutiny. Go to the pub, go to their house, talk while you’re watching the football. Get a coffee. Go where there’s something else to do if you get embarrassed.”

CALM’s CEO Simon Gunning said: “We want to normalise conversations about how you’re feeling, and the campaign should never end. We don’t want to dwell on the horror of male suicide, we want to offer a solution. Depression affects men and women, so let’s start shining light into darkness and start celebrating being a bloke whether you’re Loyle Carner, Grayson Perry or the bloke that comes to fix the fridge.”
