Katy B not confident about award win

Katy B doesn't think she will win the Mercury Prize.

The 22-year-old singer is nominated alongside Adele and Tinie Tempah for the prestigious award, which recognises the best British albums of the last 12 months.

Although she is "happy" her debut album 'On a Mission' has been nominated, she does not expect to receive an award at the London ceremony on September 6.

She said: "I really don't think I'll win it but I'm just happy to be nominated. It's a great award because it's about recognising the album rather than it being about a single or being a big seller. It's all about the music."

Although she is enjoying her success, which includes her debut album hitting No.2 in the UK album chart and three top 10 hits, Katy admits she does crave a quieter life on occasions.

She added: "I always said that I'd move out of the city, get a farm, a nice vegetable patch and find a man who loves me and I'll write songs on my piano."

The Mercury Prize has previously been won by Arctic Monkeys, Klaxons and Franz Ferdinand.
