Shy Speaker Tinchy Stryder

Tinchy Stryder hates speaking in public.

The 'Number One' singer - who has just completed a Bachelor's degree in animation at the University of East London - dreaded giving presentations in front of his class because he found it so stressful.

The 22-year-old star - whose real name is Kwasi Danquah - said: "I don't really mind the written work, but I really don't like having to do presentations in front of everyone.

"I am always running late, so I was always rushing in to present!"

Despite his rock star image, Tinchy insists he didn't live the classic student lifestyle of constant partying and shared accommodation.

He explained: "I haven't had a very typical university experience. I lived at home and I'm not really someone who goes out and gets drunk in the student bar.

"I had two close friends on my course, and we've stuck together, but otherwise I meet a lot of new people through my music so I wasn't trying to mix. I don't have any regrets, but maybe I could have got more involved with things."
