Tinie Tempah 9 to 5?

Well we certainly could not have predicted this one, but Jingle bell ball star Tinie Tempah has revealed his love for U.S country singer Dolly Parton.

However the South London rapper fears that he may have blown his chances of a collaboration with Dolly Parton after being a bit too up-front about why he's such a fan!

According to The Sun Newspaper Tinie, 22, said: "Dolly really isn't that bad to look at.

"I guess my mum made me comfortable of the fact that Dolly was a very voluptuous woman. My mum was always very vocal about that.

He said: "She almost became an indirect auntie of mine, which makes it creepy that I'd be willing to go there.

"It really didn't start as a lustful sort of thing."

He continued: "I love her voice and also she's a great songwriter.

"I'd jump at a chance to work with her but now I have probably scared her away forever."
