"I was on a plane back from LA to London and I was just sitting in my seat and then all of a sudden there was a tap on the chair. I turned around and it was Rihanna," Maynard told The Sun.

"I just stared at her. She said, 'Hi. Congratulations on everything!' and then she wandered off.

"I tried to say something but I just kind of went, 'Er... um.. er...' and that's all that came out. It really wasn't that great as a reply. I just couldn't believe it. That's the most starstruck I have ever been."

He added: "Getting to work with Pharrell was exciting but I had 17 hours a day to get prepared to meet him, but this... it was just unexpected."

Maynard recently explained that he plans to focus on cracking America next year.
