Colin Craig's alleged texts inspire a love song

Texts and letters which Colin Craig allegedly sent to his former press secretary have inspired a new love song.

The sensually satirical track, with the hook "Know that you are beautiful", comes complete with back-up singers and a jazz flute solo.

It features such lyrics as, "Your eyes are so lovely, you look unbelievable in your new dress ... there is only one of me, it's true, but I wish that was not the case because, I wish I could have you".
