Professor Green was forced to miss the wedding of fellow British rapper Example last month (May13) in order to work on his third album.

Example - real name Elliot Gleave - married actress/model Erin MCNaught in her native Australia on 18 May (13), and the star asked his pal to be a guest at the ceremony, but Professor Green had to stay behind to finish his latest project, Growing Up in Public.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "We'd planned to (attend), but the album's not done yet so I couldn't."

Professor Green, real name Stephen Manderson, is planning his own wedding to socialite Millie MACkintosh this summer (13), and admits he is eagerly awaiting his bachelor party.

He adds, "I'm not having a finger, let alone a hand in it. I'm just letting the lads do whatever they want to me. I look forward to it - as long as I'm not chained to a naked midget. I've got no idea what they are going to do."

The hip-hop star is adamant snaps from his big day will not end up in a magazine, stating, "Definitely f**king not. No f**king way. It's a wedding! It's one of the most personal days of your life. Why the f**k would you sell that? I'm not into that s**t in any way."
