Tinie Tempah: Baftas Were The Best Night Ever

Tinie Tempah has told Sky News Entertainment Week he has not washed his hands since high-fiving Prince William at the Baftas last weekend.

The 25-year-old, who also picked up an Elle Award this week for Best Male Recording Artist, described the Baftas as the best night of his life.

He said the much-hyped moment with the Prince wasn't planned.

He said: "I didn't have time to think about it. If you're gonna do a stage dive or something like that, you won't do it if you're thinking about it".

The Brit-winning singer and songwriter, who was also at the Brits this week, added that he loved meeting the Hollywood stars at the Baftas.

"It was amazing to meet them in that circumstance. Oprah was the main person I was trying to find, and Brad and Angelina, and everyone had such great things to say."

He described performing his up-coming single Heroes with Laura Mvula at the film awards ceremony as an honour.

Talking about his new music and tour he said he always tries to have a positive message in his music.

"There are people the same age as me who are quite lost out there, it's difficult to get work, to figure out who they are and what they're about, so I try to give people whatever motivation I can."

Tempah's UK tour, which uses Beyonce's set designers, starts on March 25.
