Chris Martin has revealed he is a huge fan of Jarvis Cocker and loves to sing Pulp songs at Karaoke.

The 37-year-old Coldplay star is a huge fan of the Common People hitmakers and says although he likes to sing their songs at karaoke he could never do what they do. 

He said:  ''I'm going through such a Pulp phase. I just love 'em. I listen to Jarvis and there's part of me that thinks wow I just can't do that.

''But I can do what I do and I'm very grateful that I can do that. I love Different Class but then I like bits and bobs from all over the place.

''I've never done a Pulp cover in public but in karaoke I've done a few. Jarvis is very cool, you've got to get that hand twist that he does.''

Would you like to see Pulp and Coldplay collaborate?
