Pop trio Saint Etienne have never been to the French town their band is named after.

The IS IT TRUE? stars insist they like the romantic sound of the moniker, but have no interest in visiting the real St Etienne.

Keyboardist PETE WIGGS says, "We've never actually been to the real St Etienne, that French town.

"It was just a name of a French football team and it sounded romantic. It's like a French band calling itself Sheffield."
