Tinie Tempah isn't too down about being knocked off the Number One spot by Cee Lo Green.

The Pass Out star topped the charts with newest single Written In The Stars, which was bumped down to third spot after being surpassed by Cee Lo's Forget You.

"I'm not at all disappointed, it's a massive track - I guess someone's got to push you off at some point, and I'd rather it was him than anyone else," he said.

Tinie - whose real name is Patrick Okogwu - added: "I randomly bumped into Cee Lo the week I was Number One and I expressed how much of a fan I am of his, and how we need to do some work together. He was totally up for that."

Other artists the 21-year-old rapper, who is teaming up with BlackBerry Torch to launch a Tinie Tempah fan group, would also like to work with include Adele, The Script and Michael Buble.

"Obviously Cee Lo is a dream collaboration. The Script are absolutely incredible and I'd love to work with them, and Michael Buble is one of the ultimate - I would really like to work with Michael," he said.

"There's also Adele. I want to work with everybody."
