Rapper-turned-actor Plan B – real name Ben Drew – thinks he has taken on too much since finding fame and admits he wants to take some time out.

The ‘She Said’ hitmaker, who hails from Forest Gate in east London, stars opposite Ray Winstone in new film The Sweeney but says his busy schedule has cost him his personal life.

“I’m going to have to be very careful about what I do next,” he told the Daily Star.

“I’m going to have a break and think about that.

“I was offered everything I’d ever wanted at exactly the same time.

“I thought I’d be able to do it all to a high standard, and have a personal life, and obviously that wasn’t realistic.”
