In a recent podcast, Till revealed a crazy story that happened when he was a teenager. Till prefaced the story by saying that he had been out parting with a friend on new year’s eve. After the party, he invited the friend to stay over with him at his mother’s house.

Till then narrated what happened later that night, ‘I just woke up to screaming…. Me mum was like you can get out of this f***ing house. I was like what the f**k has happened… me room was full of sick, me friend had threw up in the middle of the night. So he’s just sat there in the corner…. So me and me mum just started screaming at each other and me friend left.”  

Darren continued, “So she’s at the top of the stairs at this point and I’m at the bottom…. And she’s going I want you out of this f***ing house, you’re a piece of s**t…. And next minute I’ve grabbed a shoe and threw it out of anger and it’s f***ing clattered my mum’s face. I’ve turned around and my mum’s crying and I’m like what the f**k….”

‘The Gorilla’ then revealed that him throwing a boot at his mother caused a broken bone in her face. Which then led to him getting kicked out of his house.
