Lily Allen's Ronson surprise

Lily Allen has revealed she thought music producer Mark Ronson was gay the first time she met him

Lily Allen thought Mark Ronson was gay when she first met him.

The 'Smile' singer - who collaborated with the producer on a cover of the Kaiser Chiefs' hit track 'Oh My God' - admits she was stunned when she found out Mark was heterosexual.

She said: "I met Mark at a club night in London called YOYO. I thought he was cute, but assumed he was gay. I remember being shocked when I was introduced to his girlfriend at the time!

"Mark is magnetic in the sense that people are just drawn to him. He is also sickeningly good at working a room - women love him as do men."

Mark - who recently split from British model Daisy Lowe - also revealed he doesn't think he should be as famous as he is, because all he does is "bring different types of people together".

He told Paper magazine: "If you could call that a talent, that is probably one of my main ones, I would imagine. I enjoy when different people bring something out of each other that they usually wouldn't - when the combination of two things make something new, exciting, worthy and different."
