Rag 'n' Bone Man has revealed he is a massive fan of 'EastEnders', so much so that he requests a picture of different cast members for his dressing room at gigs
Rag 'n' Bone Man has to have a framed picture of an 'EastEnders' star on his tour rider for his dressing room.
The 'Human' hitmaker insists he is no "diva" but one "stupid" thing that he insists on having is a photo of any actor from the BBC One soap to look at backstage.
Asked what's on his rider, he said: "I'm not a diva, I only have one stupid thing on my rider which is a framed picture of and 'EastEnders' cast member.
"I've had loads so far, I've had Ian Beale, I've had Dot, I've got Sharon, it always changes.
"I hope someone will go a bit rogue and I'll get Wellard the dog.
"I'm a big fan, I love 'EastEnders'. The only show I watch religiously is 'EastEnders'. It's comfort TV, as I've watched it since I was a kid."
Meanwhile, the 32-year-old blues singer took home two BRIT Awards on Wednesday night (22.02.17), the Critics' Choice Award and British Breakthrough, and he is thinking about getting a tattoo of the gong as a keepsake as he loves the design by Zaha Hadid.
The heavily-tattooed hunk said: "I've thought about getting one to mark the BRITs.
"I like the design of the BRIT Award thing but I could look real pony is it wasn't done too well."
The 'Skin' singer - whose real name is Rory Graham - admits he finds the attention "slightly uncomfortable".
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "I'm a bit overwhelmed, if slightly uncomfortable.
"I thought this was something that was really far out of reach.
"I sat on the sofa talking to my pals about doing certain things musically and the BRIT Awards wasn't even in the realms of possibility."
