Ben Drew - Plan B Hates Festive Songs

Plan B hates Christmas music.

The musician - whose real name is Ben Drew - can understand why festive songs are popular but wishes people put more effort into writing them.

He said: "I f***ing hate Christmas songs. I just think they're always so badly written.

"I'm not being a scrooge, I can just about tolerate them this time of year - it just wouldn't be Christmas without Christmas songs."

Not only is he not a fan of Christmas pop music, the 'She Said' hitmaker doesn't particularly enjoy traditional carols wither.

He added: "If any f***ing carol singers come to my door, I would definitely throw snowballs at them."

The 'She Said' hitmaker recently admitted he is "really stressed" at having to juggle recording his new album 'The Ballad Of Belmarsh' - which he says is 70 per cent complete - and preparing to attempt to crack America and Australia next year.

He said: "I'm so tired and I'm really getting stressed out. On January 10 I'm off to Australia and America for a month, then I'm on the arena tour back here and performing at the BRIT Awards.

"If it doesn't take off in America I come back here to finish my film."
