He may be busy with his music career, but has said he’d be willing to shut himself off from the world and sign up for .

Ahead of the reboot of the reality show next year, the rapper has revealed he’d be open to becoming a housemate, but wouldn’t want to be living with other famous faces.

‘I would want to go on Big Brother – not the celebrity one but the civilian one and just be me,’ he said.

‘I’ve got this theory that I would either be really hated or really loved, no middle ground but I’d miss my so bad though. Forget my family I’d miss my dogs’ man.’

His comments came as he was speaking to Fleur East on The Hits Radio Breakfast Show, where Stormzy also said he’d like to mentor other musicians as a judge on The X Factor once he wound up his own career.

‘If I had to go on a reality show I would want to be a judge on The X Factor,’ he added.

‘I did it one year, I joined Nicole [Scherzinger] and that was amazing. I had a great time.

‘I want to do that when I hang up my mike.’

With East currently competing on a reality series herself——the pair also spoke about her time on the series, with Stormzy urging viewers to vote after she was nearly eliminated last weekend.

‘I know Strictly is like the biggest [reality show], it’s the king of all of them. I’m going to watch Strictly now, I’m going to tune in, and if you’re listening come on man, you got her in the bottom two you need to vote on Saturday night, it’s not nice to have her in the bottom two.’

Despite his interest in reality TV, it might be a while yet before we see Stormzy on our screens, as he’s been busy with new music.

His third album, This Is What I Mean, is due to be released on November 25.

It will follow on from the epic 11-minute music video for his single , which featured appearances from Usain Bolt, Louis Theroux and José Mourinho.
