DJ Fatboy Slim has shared stories of some of his many alter egos.

In an exclusive event at Brighton Beach House, he told anecdotes about his youth in the city and talked about some of his favourite memories.

The DJ, real name Norman Cook, has had many pseudonyms over the years, which interviewer Kevin Bishop quizzed him on in a game of true or false. 

He revealed some of his alter egos, including DJ Ox, who "played hip-hop jams in Hangleton".  

But does he hide behind the name? 

"I like having a pseudonym," he told the audience.

"Fatboy Slim is sworn to fun, loyal to none. He is a version of me, but his mental age is still 17."

"Norman Cook is a devoted father of two."

The conversation began with actor and comedian Bishop playing a clip from Fatboy Slim's Big Beach Boutique Set from 2002.

He asked the audience if any of them were there to which there were several whoops and cheers. 

With a glimmer in his eyes, Norman, who lives on Hove seafront, said: "It was the last perfect rave."

Born Quentin Leo Cook in Bromley, Norman moved to Brighton for college. 

"I am a Brighton boy through and through," he said. 

Ever-humble, he spoke of breaking into the dance music scene in Brighton after his ten-year stint with the Housemartins.

"I don't think I have done anything that hasn't been done before," he said.

"I was just the one who knew how to get it on to the radio."

Norman spoke candidly about his experience of going teetotal and announced that he would be celebrating 14 years sober this year. 

"Part of my job is to create havoc, and I love seeing that in the crowds," he said.

"But now I prefer to experience that with my audience, for my two-hour set, and then leave it there."

The event ended with Norman returned to its opening, reminiscing about the Big Beach Boutique. 

"That, for me, was my greatest triumph," he said.

Applause erupted, and Norman took questions from the audience who were keen to ask him about his status as a Brighton legend.

He said: "I think dance music, and the Premier League football club, have really put Brighton on the global stage."
