James Blunt claims he reads his own reviews every morning when he wakes up

James Blunt reads his own reviews every morning.

The 'You're Beautiful' hitmaker is currently out on the road, so checks out what people thought of the shows as soon as he wakes up in order to stay "humble".

He said: "I'm on the European leg of my tour, so as soon as I wake up I check my phone and my reviews from the night before to keep me humble. Then BBC News to keep me depressed."

The 'When I Find Love Again' singer embraces modern technology and has a wide variety of apps on his phone to keep him informed of his surroundings.

He said: "I love a good app. Around me is great for finding stuff wherever you are.

"Vivino is a great wine app to help you pretend you know something about wine."

And James clearly enjoys indulging in the wines he discovers as he often goes to bed drunk.

He told Grazia magazine: "I never usually read before bed. Normally I'm drunk and the tour bus is moving.

"I've got Tom Wolfe's 'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test' but haven't yet read it."
