Dizzee Rascal 'Teaching Fearne Cotton How To Rap'

August 2, 2010
Dizzee Rascal 'Teaching Fearne Cotton How To Rap'Dizzee Rascal is reportedly teaching TV presenter Fearne Cotton how to rap after attempts to get her singing failed.

The pair met whilst filming new Sky1 talent show Must Be The Music. Cotton, 28, is presenting the show whilst Dizzee is acting as a judge.

Speaking to The Sun about the show, Cotton said: "I can't sing but Dizzee's been teaching me to rap.

"He may appear to be crazy but he's one of the loveliest people and also a true professional.

"You don't get to his level in the industry by luck. He knows exactly what he's doing."

The UK rapper, who has had five solo number one singles, has even given Fearne a rap name, dubbing her F Cott and What.

Cotton added that despite her rap lessons she is still attempting to sing:

"I sing so loud in the car on the way to work. I'm sure people are covering their ears on the streets even when my windows are up."
