British BLUE singer Duncan James may be a rich pop star - but he still gets nagged by his mother to clean his room.

The ALL RISE hitmaker, 25, admits he's incredibly lazy and messy, and the state of his bedroom could easily put off female admirers.

James says, "I looked at my bedroom in disgust this morning. There are bags everywhere from all my trips.

"I don't have a cleaner because I don't trust them, but my mate LISA helps me. And I feel so embarrassed I end up helping her anyway.

"Me and my mum went on a six-hour mission to tackle my room recently. She said, 'Duncan, you can't live like this,' so we hoovered, polished, folded."
