Paloma Faith is ''fine'' after being mugged.

The 'Can't Rely On You' hitmaker was robbed in the street recently, and though the thief made off with her bag, the singer - who insists she wasn't targetted because of her fame - was thankful the situation wasn't worse.

She said: ''I was mugged a few weeks ago in London, they came from behind me, they didn't mug 'me', I don't think they saw it was me, they just saw a person.

''They got my bag but luckily my phone and keys were in my pocket. A word of warning - always separate.

''I'm fine, I was scarily fine but the person I was with was really shaken up. I was just like, 'That's pretty standard in London'. Maybe I'm desensitised.''

Paloma insists her cool-headed stance wasn't unusual as she is often a useful person to have around during a crisis.

She added in an interview with BBC Radio 2 presenter Dermot O'Leary: ''I'm really good in a crisis if anyone ever needs me, if you want any advice or anything. I'll turn up and sort everything out.''

The 32-year-old singer first revealed she had been mugged on twitter, writing last month: ''I got mugged last night. Not fun. Thank you London. That'll teach me to walk home.''
