Bradley Walsh has called on Stormzy to work on a collaboration nearly a year after the duo formed an unlikely friendship at the Brit Awards.

The actor and presenter of The Chase, who joined Instagram this week, posted a video online, and asked the grime artist when they were going to team up.

He wrote: “@stormzyofficial when’s the collab?! It’s about to get #merky.”

In the video, the 57-year-old TV star dances along to Stormzy’s track Blinded By Your Grace – Part 2 in the back of a car.

“Here I am, on my way to work, listening to Stormzy,” he told his followers.

“Keep it real Stormzy! You the man.”

Walsh first met Stormzy at the Brit Awards last year, when they embraced each other on the red carpet and called each other “legends”.

Walsh, who was named the UK’s most successful debut artist of 2016 after his album of covers went gold, later joked they could work together on an album covering American composer Nelson Riddle arrangements in “grime form”.

In October, the pair appeared on The Jonathan Ross Show together, where 24-year-old Stormzy said he would work with Walsh as the TV presenter sang his own version of some of the rapper’s songs.


Walsh debuted on the social networking site earlier this week after Holly Willoughby convinced him to set up an account at the National Television Awards.

Willoughby was among those who commented on Walsh’s Stormzy post.

She wrote, along with a crying laughing emoji: “You on Instagram is fast becoming one of my favourite things!”
