Queen's Brian May Loves Dappy

N-Dubz star Dappy has got an unexpected new fan – legendary Queen guitarist Brian May.

The veteran guitarist revealed that he was big admirer of Dappy's solo single, 'No Regrets', which was released earlier this year.

Brian told The Sun: "I just heard a great song by the guy from N-Dubz, Dappy, 'No Regrets'.

"I started listening to the words and thought, 'My God that's the kind of song worthy of an award for lyrics'."

He added: "I thought it was very well done. It's my favourite song of today."

'No Regrets' is the first single to be taken from Dappy's debut solo album, which he has said he plans to release in 2012.
