Black socks on Tinie Tempah's backstage demands
Rappers are known for their often outrageous lists of rider requests, so perhaps it's refreshing that Tinie Tempah rocks it backstage a little more modestly than most.

The British chart-topper's demands for the Ultrasound Music Festival in Tamworth this September included two pairs of black men's socks (size eight), a packet of Yorkshire Tea, some water and five Pot Noodles.

Additionally, Mr Tempah requests confectionary in the shape of snakes and a copy of the Sun in his backstage kit - with bottles of wine and Jack Daniels being the most rock 'n' roll things on the list.

The 22-year-old, perhaps most famous for his number one singles Pass Out and Written in the Stars, took a number of accolades at the South Bank Awards, Brit Awards and Ivor Novello Awards this year.
