Talking to KISS FM hosts Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely of the street-dance group Diversity, the singer-songwriter expressed – rather enthusiastically – that the River Severn is her "favourite river of all time".

As part of a pop quiz, Jordan asked Becky and Perri: "What is the longest river in Britain?".

The singer excitedly screamed her response, confirming that her home town Bewdley sits on the river.

"It's my favourite river of all time," Becky responded, which amused Banjo, who replied "you've got a favourite river of all time?"

Becky continued: "If you want me to spell it, it has an 'R' in it. It sounds like the number but it's spelt like the river.

"I've had some of my favourite memories along the River Severn."

She then asked the host: "Did you know this? Did you know I was from Bewdley which sits on the River Severn?"

Banjo said he did not, but the show's producer was seemingly nodding her head – and was most likely responsible for the question.
