Wretch 32 has said that he would be up for collaborating with Sir Tom Jones, if his mother insisted on it.

The Traktor rapper will be performing alongside the Welsh crooner and VV Brown at the Arthur's Day celebration in London, which will be held in the capital for the first time at Senate House on September 27.

The 27-year-old, whose real name is Jermaine Scott, has no plans to duet with Tom as yet, but joked: "My mum is a big fan of Sir Tom. He's a legend, so I'll do a duet with him only for her sake."

Wretch promised to liven up the Arthur's Day stage for the UK show.

"I'll bring a lot of energy on stage with my band," he said.

"Arthur's Day coming to London reminds me of the whole Olympics spirit. It's been quite a eventful year for London and Arthur's Day adds to how special it is. I'm definitely looking forward to it and I can't wait."

The grime artist is also looking forward to joining Cheryl Cole on stage as a surprise guest on their single, S**** You.

"I find it fun and exciting, popping out as a surprise guest. No one knows where or when I'm going to be coming out," he said.

"I want people to be shocked - it's not The X Factor or the Wretch Factor, but the shock factor."
