Carrie Fisher was the godmother of James Blunt's child. He spoke about his close friendship with the Star Wars
actress during ITV's The Nightly Show
"I met her in London in a restaurant through mutual friends. She asked me, 'What do you do?' I said, 'I've just left the army, I've got a record deal and I'm going to move to Los Angeles to record an album.'
"She said, 'Well then you're going to need a place to stay - come and live with me.' Literally like that.
"And I lived in her house, recording three of those albums, and whenever I've been in Los Angeles that's my home. I recorded 'Goodbye My Lover
' in her bathroom, because everyone has a piano in Hollywood."
