Sir Elton recently presented Taron Egerton with a gift.

The 28-year-old, who portrays the singer in the upcoming Rocketman biopic, was so dedicated to the role, he had his ear pierced. He told talk show host Graham Norton he was delighted with the special present.

He said: "Elton was amazing. I had my ear pierced for the role and he gave me his first ever diamond earring."

Taron has had a splendid time on the set, calling it "the single greatest experience of my life."
