Snoop Dogg has revealed that he is a big admirer of the late comedian Benny Hill.

Speaking to The Guardian, the rapper confessed that he would even like to play the role of Hill in a movie about the star.

He said: "I love Benny Hill. He one of my favourites of aaall time. Like, the way Benny did it, he was just amazing. Just seeing how he put songs together and comedy and the timing and the sketches. He was way ahead of his time. (sic)

"I would like to play Benny Hill in the Benny Hill movie. I'll even paint my face white."

Snoop Dogg, who released his latest album Doggumentary earlier this year, added that he loves visiting the UK, despite a ban from the country after a fracas at Heathrow Airport in 2006 caused by his entourage.

He said: "I wanna thank the people who fought to bring me back into this beautiful country. I feel the emotion, the spirit, the power, it's so different from any other place I've ever been. The only word I can explain it with is exuberance.

"You see the love, from the babies to the owner to the maid, there's no in between when it comes to this love over here, they're feelin' Snoop Dogg, you know what I'm sayin'?"

On whether he takes tips on fatherhood or practising football from his friend David Beckham, he replied: "No, you know, me and Becks's relationship ain't about tips, it's about bein' friends man. I love what he do, he love what I do and it's just a common bond."

Snoop Dogg was recently rumoured to have been approached to appear in this year's Celebrity Big Brother, along with Tim Westwood.
