The 33-year-old British musician has started growing trees in the garden of his Ibiza home to "do his bit for the environment".

He said: "When I bought the place it had a garden with an orchard at the side. It's about the size of a five-a-side football pitch and has apple trees, orange trees, avocados, limes and plums, which I planted myself.

"I'm really into growing trees these days, trying to do my bit for the environment. In fact, we plant a tree every time we sell a ticket online."

Blunt has also praised his parents and family for supporting him throughout his life, especially when he told them he wanted to become a pop star.

The former army captain said: "My whole family, my parents and my two younger sisters, have all been so supportive. I don't think I'd have achieved what I have without them."
