Tyler says he'll never be full of himself

The Voice star Tyler James has admitted he’ll never be as cocky as Robbie Williams.

Tyler, who has found success since reaching the final of the TV talent show last year, thinks Robbie, 39, is probably not as big-headed as he appears though.

I’m never going to be like Robbie Williams, who’s really cocky,’ says Tyler, 31.

But somewhere in his head he’s probably the most insecure person in the world. If cockiness comes from a genuine place, then how good is it to feel like that?

That will never be me. But I don’t know… give me a year and I might be the cockiest bloke in the world!’

The shy singer, who was close pals with Amy Winehouse, might be quiet but he isn’t usually intimidated by meeting other celebs.

I am a little shy but I’m not starstruck – my best friend was one of the biggest superstars in the world,’ says Tyler.

I met Mariah Carey years ago at a Capital Radio thing and I stayed silent and acted like a total kn*b! I grew up in Canning Town, singing Hero aged five.’
