Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger never thought that BBC 6 Music would be closed, Huey Morgan has said.

The Fun Lovin' Criminals singer told Digital Spy that both he and Jagger agreed it was always unlikely that the station would be abolished.

The BBC announced plans to close down the station in March 2010, but it was given a reprieve by the BBC Trust just four months later

Morgan explained: "I was doing an interview with Mick Jagger cos they'd re-released Exile On Main Street.

"At the end of the interview he decided to tell me there's no way 6 Music is going anywhere. And if Mick Jagger says it's not going anywhere, it's not going anywhere."
