Dizzee Rascal loves Desperate Housewives

Radio 1's Big Weekend - Day 1Dizzee Rascal has a secret fascination with ‘Desperate Housewives’.

The ‘Holiday’ hitmaker admitted he loves watching the US TV show because he has a huge crush on actress Eva Longoria Parker, but can only get away with tuning in if he’s in the company of a woman.

He said: “Depending on who I’m with, I might be partial to a bit of ‘Desperate Housewives’. Being with a girl is a good excuse to watch it. I like that small one… Eva Longoria Parker.”

However, the 24-year-old star isn’t a fan of Eva’s character Gabrielle Solis, preferring Marcia Cross’ alter ego Bree Van De Camp.

He said: “I don’t necessarily think she’s the best character. I quite like the ginger one and the dude in the wheelchair. There’s quite a nice thing going on with them at the moment.”

Dizzee also revealed that he doesn’t enjoy watching reality TV shows like ‘The X Factor’ and prefers to watch music videos featuring his fellow artists instead.

He said: “I don’t follow it, but if I’m in a room full of people who are watching it, I’ll get stuck in and start judging and throwing my opinion about. It gets you like that.”
