James Blunt says his ''musical hero'' Sir Elton John is always ''really nice'' when he goes to him for advice

James Blunt gets advice from Sir Elton John.

The 'You're Beautiful' hitmaker is pleased that he is able to consult the legendary singer whenever he has a problem and always finds the 'Your Song' star friendly and helpful.

He said: "My musical hero is probably Elton John. He owns the management firm I'm with and when I've needed advice, he's always been there at the end of the phone. He's a really, really nice human being."

James also insisted he would never serenade a girlfriend with any of his own music as it would be a "weird" thing to do.

He said: "I used to carry my guitar around a lot before I started playing professionally and people would say, 'Come on James, Play us something.' And I would.

"But I think it would be a bit weird now, so I do it on stage instead."
