Example doesn't like collaborations

Example has admitted that he isn't a fan of collaborating with other artists.

The 'Say Nothing' star has teamed up with a number of artists over the years - such as Calvin Harris - and he has also penned tracks for acts like The Wanted.

Speaking to Digital Spy, however, he revealed that he would rather just make tracks himself and sell them on.

When asked if he is planning on working with The Wanted again, Example replied:

"No, I don't really like working with other artists. If I'm writing a song it has got to be my song on my terms. Unless it's an artist I really respect who I think can write themselves, I don't really want to get into the studio with anyone. I'd rather just make songs and then sell them to people."

Example meanwhile said that his forthcoming new single 'Close Enemies' wasn't originally intended for him to use. He said:

"I don't know what it's about because I originally didn't write it for me. I was in a writing session about six months ago and I wrote 'Chasing The Sun' on the Monday - I didn't realise it would be for The Wanted at that time - and 'Close Enemies' on the Tuesday. I didn't know who it was going to be for. I was just writing big pop songs for whoever. I liked it so much, I just tweaked the lyrics to make it suit me, but originally I imagined it suiting someone like Rihanna."
