British rapper Professor Green has swapped his car for the train following his recent driving ban, but he doesn't enjoy mixing with the public on London's subway system.

The Read All About It hitmaker, real name Stephen Manderson, was banned from the roads for a year in March (14) after he pleaded guilty to a drink-driving charge.

Green is now using the London Underground and the Docklands Light Railway to get around the capital, but he is not happy about being surrounded by strangers during his travels.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "I had to get an Oyster card (London travel card). It's about nine f**king quid (pounds) a day. Since when?... I get the Docklands Light Railway, and people never think it's me. What I miss, apart from my car, is being away from other people. I don't really like other people."
