The Streets star MIKE SKINNER is cutting down on his beer intake because he doesn't want to get fat.

The British rapper is famous for his love of beer and brandy but he fears the liquid diet will help to turn him into a drunken fatty.

He says, "Beer puts you on you back. Plus it makes you fat. I'm post-25, so I have to watch what I eat."
