Singer James Blunt has bought a motorised rickshaw from Thailand so he can travel around his luxury estate on wheels.

The You're Beautiful hitmaker lives on the Spanish island of Ibiza with his wife-to-be Sofia Wellesley and he has developed a unique way of getting around the property without tiring out his legs.

He has invested in a 'tuktuk' - a high-speed cart popular in Asia - from a store in Bangkok and admits he loves goofing around on it with his pals.

Blunt says, "I have a tuktuk from Bangkok, which is awesome. (It's a) three-wheeled vehicle, it does 70 miles an hour, and I drive it around home in Ibiza. And if you get your mates on the back, you can wheelie as well - at 70 miles an hour!"
