Ah cheers. I do love watching these Top repeats. Kids today don't know what they're missing (alas it would probably be a half-hour of Ed Sheeran punctuated by the odd Grime track)

I've never bought the folklore around wearing it for a disabled fan. My memory of that era has Johnnie Ray being mentioned by Moz in a magazine around this time. Seems more likely especially as it's matched to his aid (the NHS had moved on a little even in the 'haties').

Forget my fate.
I would agree.

And is this a coincidence?
I Don't Owe You Anything is widely believed to be sourced from the line 'I don't owe you a thing' (from The Taste of Honey), but it would not surprise me if the title was actually inspired by Johnnie Ray's song.
