Conor Maynard was amazed Lily Allen bought her own ticket to watch him perform.

The 'Vegas Girl' singer was quite starstruck when Lily came to one of his early shows to check him out, and didn't even ask to be put on the guest list.

Speaking at the Nordoff Robbins Silver Clef Awards - where he picked up the TAG Newcomer Award - Conor told BANG Showbiz: ''It was amazing to know Lily Allen came along to one of my first shows in London, and she even bought her own ticket, which was the best part. I only found out on the day, so I was crazy.''

He also said while it is too late for her to appear on his debut album, which has been completed, he would love to work with Lily on a track for her pop comeback, which she is currently recording, after retiring in 2010.

Conor said: ''Working with her would be an insane thing to do, so I'll definitely keep my eye out and see if she offers it.''

The 19-year-old singer also said he can't wait for his album to be released because he's been in the studio making it for so long and wants people to hear the results.

He explained: ''Being in the studio can take up a lot of time and you're like 'uh, I wish I could see my friends, I wish I could get out there.' But then you release it, and you see how people are loving your music and loving you as well, and it makes it all worth it.''
