Source Notes

Craft quotes Take That documentary, "Tape That", which shows Donald's birth certificate, with the birth time presumably being on the birth certificate. (at 01:05) [1]

Scholfield changed the rating from AA to B because the birth certificate is too blurry to read and English birth certificates do not include a time of birth unless the subject is a twin, triplet, etc, which Donald is not. The narrator of the documentary states the time of birth without giving a source.
