Ricky Wilson had to be rescued by security after fans tried to rip his shirt off at MTV Crashes Plymouth.

The Kaiser Chiefs entertained fans at the gig on Tuesday (15.07.14) in Devon with their hits 'Ruby' and 'Everyday I Love You Less and Less', but things got out of control and bodyguards were forced to intervene.

However, that didn't appear to deter the 36-year-old musician, who later took several photographs of himself on a fan's phone, before posting them on Twitter.

He accompanied the snap - which he'd created as a four-picture montage - with the cheeky caption: ''I stole this guys phone and took pictures... (sic).''

He then posted the picture again and noted that he particularly ''loved'' the photo of the cheering crowd.

Meanwhile, the hunk did manage to do some sightseeing before the gig - which also included performances from Example, The 1975 and Kiesza - as he was spotted paying a visit to the famous Smeaton's Tower at Eddystone Lighthouse yesterday.

Ricky tweeted a photo of himself at the top of the tower, which he'd accompanied with the caption: ''Guess where I am... (Clue: it's terrifying).''

He then followed it up with another picture, but this time of the stunning tower and blue sky in the background, after receiving a number of replies from fans.

He tweeted: ''That's right! Top of John Smeaton's Eddystone Lighthouse.''
