Plan B is taking a long break after saying he did too much after shooting to fame

Plan B is taking a long break.

The rapper-turned-actor - whose real name is Ben Drew - is desperate for a holiday because he thinks he has taken on too much since finding fame so now wants some time out to figure out what to do next.

He said: "I'm going to have to be very careful about what I do next. I'm going to have a break and think about that."

The 'She Said' hitmaker - who can next be seen starring opposite Ray Winstone in 'The Sweeney' - thinks he was naive to believe he could take on everything he was offered and do it well, in addition to being able to still have a full personal life.

He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I was offered everything I'd ever wanted at exactly the same time.

"I thought I'd be able to do it all to a high standard, and have a personal life, and obviously that wasn't realistic."

Before taking his break, Plan B took to the stage last night (04.09.12) at the iTunes festival at London's Roundhouse.
