Taron Egerton thinks highly of his sex scene in Rocketman (Picture: BACKGRID)

Taron Egerton is pretty chuffed with his and Richard Maddens forthcoming sex scene.

The British actors star alongside each other in the anticipated Elton John biopic, Rocketman, with Taron, 29, as Elton himself and Richard, 32, portraying the singers manager and lover, John Reid.

No doubt keen to give the complex story justice, Taron reveals that he and Richard let go of all their inhibitions and turned up the heat for their sex scene.

Sharing details with The List, Taron said: I probably shouldnt be telling you this but we have a sex scene. We went to some places together and got quite physical.

Ive watched it back and I think it looks great.

Rocketman will chart Eltons early years in the music industry, his time at the Royal Academy of Music and his personal battles with fame and drug abuse.

Teasing the no-holds-barred nature of the musical, Taron added: The grown-up nature of the film, combined with it being a musical, makes it feel quite zeitgeisty.

I dont know if Im allowed to say this but its basically about Elton in rehab, so were not watering anything down.

Rocketman will show Taron like never before, with the actor pushed to his limits in the all-singing and dancing production.

Taron continued: I finished working on it two days ago and I think it could be the best thing Ive done. It feels very special and Ive loved every minute of it.

More: Elton John

Ive always loved singing and musicals, and I felt that there was that big side of myself that I havent explored yet in films but this gave me the opportunity to do that. And its very consciously a proud, gay film and its also open to showing Eltons darker moments.

Rocketman hits cinemas on 19 May 2019.
