The Streets star MIKE SKINNER is still struggling to acknowledge his fame.

Now he's released a second album the ORIGINAL PIRATE MATERIAL hitmaker is practically a superstar in his native Britain - he even had to warn off an overly aggressive autograph hunter with a bottle after a recent confrontation.

But he insists he hasn't yet got the ego to match being a celebrity: "At first it's like 'Why do you want my autograph?' You just can't believe that someone would want it.

"But then if I met REDMAN I would want his autograph because I like his music and he's famous. So I understand it, but you still feel like a bit of a c*nt. It's like admitting you're really special."
