As a child he attended the prestigious British independent school Harrow. Following a military subsidised university education Blunt served in the British Army before achieving worldwide fame with his hit debut single, ‘You’re Beautiful’. He has since sold over 20-million albums worldwide and has accrued a huge Twitter following thanks to his sharp wit and cutting putdowns to haters.
