Conor can't say no to Lily duet

Conor Maynard has a fan in Lily Allen

Conor Maynard has revealed he would love to collaborate with Lily Allen.

The 27-year-old Smile star - who recently announced she is working on a new album - is a big fan of the 19-year-old Can't Say No singer.

Conor said: "The fact that she's a fan is really cool, so if I ever had the chance to work with her it would be amazing. I don't know what kind of song we'd fit on together but it would definitely be a cool thing.

"She came along to one of my first shows in London, unannounced. She didn't even get given a ticket she bought a ticket to come and watch it, it was crazy. "

The Vegas Girl star also admitted he gets a bit emotional hearing the crowd sing along to his top three hit Can't Say No, but he loves it.

Conor said: "It is a really weird feeling. When I do massive shows like that it's really weird thinking that they're singing a song back to me that I wrote.

"Especially as the main part they sing back to me is 'Houston, I think we got a problem' - that was the first line that I put down on the song.

"I said 'I really want this song to say Houston I think we got a problem and I really think that that will be a part that everyone will want to sing along to', and sure enough it's the part that everyone does. It makes you want to go and write another song everyone can sing along to."

Conor will perform at BBC Radio 1's Teen Awards along with One Direction, Taylor Swift and Little Mix on October 7. Tickets go on sale on September 22 with more details at www.bbc.co.uk/radio1.
