London - Sir Tom Jones wants to duet with Dizzee Rascal.

The singing legend is a big fan of the British rapper and would love him to appear on one of his tracks.

He said: "I like his song, Dance Wiv Me, it's a British rap, which is great. It doesn't have to be American to be gangster, but this is happy rap. I'd have him rapping on one of my records if it called for it."

Tom also revealed the Arctic Monkeys are big fans of his and the indie rockers even use his music as inspiration.

He added: "I went to an awards ceremony recently and got talking to Alex Turner from Arctic Monkeys in the pub afterwards.

"He was going on about Love Me Tonight, a song I did in 1969. He said, 'That song is slamming.' They listen to it in the dressing room before they go on.",00.html
