Asked by hosts Ranvir Singh and Charlotte Hawkins if he hadsent Cheryl some of his music, Craig replied: "We've always got something inthere but ultimately it's where Cheryl is going with her career and what she'sdoing. Right now, I'm just working on my own project."
Craig first found fame back in 2000 with his hit debut albumBorn To Do It. He returned to the music scene last year after a six-year hiatus. "It was a rollercoaster ride of a career as an artist. From being 17 in acouncil estate in Southampton, to Wembley Arena and there amazing shows andperformances… then I felt like I was forcing music out," he explained.

"I moved out to Miami about six years ago, thinking thatpossibly that was living the dream, but it wasn't that. I realised it was aboutbeing home and being close to my family and my friends and making music and impactingpeople's lives."
Craig's return to the charts earlier this year was labelled acomeback by many, but he insisted he was simply working "off the radar". "You're just off thescene for a while," he said. "I was still writing as I knew I had three minutesin me somewhere."
Craig is set to release his sixth album, Following MyIntuition, in September. Back in February, his single When The Bassline Dropspeaked at number 10 in the UK charts – his highest position since 2007.
