Comic Enjoys ''Rocketman'' Cameo

Written by Chief Editor.

Keith Lemon has a cameo in Rocketman, the upcoming musical movie about Elton.

The 45-year-old  – whose real name is Leigh Francis – has only ''four lines,'' but was thrilled to be part of the film. 

He told the Sun: "If you blink you'll miss me. 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."

The Celebrity Juice host went on to praise Taron Egerton's portrayal of Elton and he wants the actor to make an appearance on his comedy panel show.

He said: "I did a scene with Taron Egerton and Jamie Bell [Bernie Taupin]. Taron is amazing in it because he sings all of 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'."
