Taron Egerton, Richard Madden, singing in a car… What else could you want?

The two stars of the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman took part in a new episode of Carpool Karaoke – set to air this Friday on Apple TV – and judging from the promo, it looks amazing.

While joining James Corden on the Late Late Show, Egerton – who is starring as the iconic singer – revealed the two co-stars got ‘blind drunk’ the night before filming the new episode, but they still look handsome as ever.

In the promo we see Madden – who shot to fame as the Bodyguard, but really, he had stolen our hearts as Robb Stark in Game of Thrones – sat waiting for his co-star who arrives dressed as a ‘multi-coloured chicken’ in honour of Elton’s flamboyant fashion sense.

Madden stars as Elton’s real life lover and music manager John Reid in the upcoming movie and we would be lying if we said this wasn’t something we are looking forward to seeing.

The new film is set to be released at the end of May and also stars Jamie Bell.
