Tinie Tempah has admitted that he is a big admirer of British stars like Jessie J and Adele.

The rapper said he was not surprised both acts were enjoying success in the US and said they were helping each other succeed.

"I just think we're [the British] starting to love ourselves a whole lot more," he told BBC Newsbeat.

"I love Adele, I love Jessie J, I love James Blake, I love Eliza Doolittle, I love Ellie Goulding - all these people are making their mark over there.

"We all support each other and push each other and we want each other to succeed."

Tinie Tempah, Adele and Jessie J have all enjoyed success on the US album chart in recent weeks.
