Diana Vickers' sweet performances

'Once' singer Diana Vickers can't perform properly unless she has chocolate to eat first.
Great deals on musical instruments

Diana Vickers will only perform if she's had chocolate to eat first.

The singer - who rose to fame in the UK on TV talent show 'The X Factor' in 2008 and is tipped to reach the nation's number one slot with her debut single 'Once' on Sunday (18.04.10) - has a modest rider, but requests a certain brand of chocolate, from manufacturer Cadbury for every show she plays.

Diana told The Metro newspaper: "I've had mountains of Dairy Milk on my rider. I love it. I've specified it has to be at every gig. As long as I have a nice bit of Dairy Milk, a kettle and some honey I'm all set to perform."

The 18-year-old singer said the most surreal fan encounter to date was when she was recognised when she recently stopped off at a remote cafe.

She added: "We were travelling in the middle of the night and I really needed a wee so we pulled over into this little hut café thing in the middle of nowhere. This woman said: 'Oh my god, it's Diana Vickers.' It was weird. It was just her and this old man miles from anywhere."

Since becoming famous, Diana said she's only made two extravagant purchases - and hasn't even had time to use one of them yet.

She added: "I bought a Stella McCartney dress and a treadmill. The dress is beautiful, long and white and very elegant. Sadly, the treadmill is just sitting in a corner gathering dust."
