Example has revealed he is a huge fan of Adele's James Bond theme tune 'Skyfall' describing it as "amazing."

The 'Say Nothing' rapper admits that he knew the Grammy-winner had been chosen to record the latest in a long line of theme tunes for the legendary spy franchise, but she refused to play the song for him as she was, of course, sworn to secrecy.

"I love it, it's amazing. It's definitely a great one to add to it," Example told Capital FM.

"I remember when she was writing it, though she wouldn't play me any of it obviously because she was sworn to secrecy. I got to hear it on the same day as everyone else."

Comparing it to that of Dame Shirley Bassey's Bond themes, Example added: "[It's a] beautiful, beautiful song. It sounds very similar to the Shirley Bassey ones."

'Skyfall' is currently sitting at number two in the UK charts after being denied the number one spot by Swedish House Mafia.
