Ludacris - London lover Ludacris

Ludacris loves London.

The American rapper and actor spent a lot of time in the UK capital while filming Hollywood blockbuster 'Fast & Furious 6' last year and was lucky enough to enjoy the atmosphere of the 2012 London Olympics, reinforcing his passion for the city and its social life.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, he said: ''I was here when the Olympics was on so I got to check out some of the Olympics while I was here. I hit the town I went to restaurants, clubs, everything, I have a whole new appreciation for London.''

The 35-year-old star also admits he's growing to enjoy British soccer, taking after his personal trainer's love of the sport, and he hopes to find a team to support next time he's in the UK.

He added: ''My trainer is a really big fan [of soccer] so I'm trying to see who I'm going to be a fan of because I haven't been able to watch it as much as I want to. But I will.''

While Ludacris, whose real name is Christopher Brian Bridges, loved being on location, he found himself more back-stage while his co-stars - including Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson - got more involved with the ''action''.

He added: ''I'm the tech guy in the movie, so I don't really get out that much, I'm kind of behind the scenes on a computer. I get a little piece of the action but I wasn't here when they shot those scenes.''
