Celebrity Juice host Keith Lemmon made his acting debut in the new Elton John biopic - but did you spot him?
Elton John biopic Rocketman hit the cinemas earlier this month, and is already proving to be a hit with fans and critics.
As well featuring some of Elton's best hits - such as 'The Bitch is Back', 'Your Song', Tiny Dancer' and, of course, 'Rocket Man' - the Dexter Fletcher-directed movie also includes a surprise celeb cameo, from none other than Celebrity Juice's Keith Lemon.
That's right - Keith Lemon (whose real name is Leigh Francis) joined the star-studded cast led by Taron Egerton, playing shop worker Pete.
Speaking to The Sun, Keith Lemon said: “If you blink you’ll miss me, but I had a few lines."
He added: “I’m in the trailer. I’ve got yellow trousers on!“I’ve known the director [Dexter Fletcher] for years and he asked me if I wanted to do a cameo, so I said yes.
“I’ve only got four lines but it was really exciting. I did a scene with Taron Egerton and Jamie Bell.”
When asked about Taron Egerton, who plays a young Elton John in the movie, Leigh commented: “Taron is amazing in it because he sings all the tunes as well.
“I want to get him on Celebrity Juice. I’ve had a cameo in his movie, so he can come and have a cameo on Celebrity Juice!"
