Rapper Tinie Tempah has recalled having a bare-chested "sweaty man-hug" with the Duke of Cambridge.

Reminiscing about Radio 1's Big Weekend in Bangor in 2010, the chart-topper said the Duchess of Cambridge looked a "bit worried" that she would be next in line for a hug.

Speaking to the Mail on Sunday's Event magazine, Tinie said: "So, I've got Prince William, the future king of England, in a sweaty man-hug.

"I've got no T-shirt on, just come off stage and I'm dripping wet, and Kate is looking a bit worried because she knows her hug is coming next."

He went on: "And everyone made a big deal out of me high-fiving William at the Baftas. 'Ooh, you mustn't touch a member of the Royal Family!'

"After that little cuddle, William and Kate were covered in my sweat. And they seemed to quite like it."
