Rocketman star Taron Egerton joined the real-life Elton John at the singer's latest show in Hove last night (June 9).

As part of Elton's epic Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, actor Taron surprised fans for a duet of 'Your Song'.

Wearing a rainbow T-shirt, Taron stood at the front of the stage while Elton joined on piano and backing vocals.

The performance is the first time anyone has made a special guest appearance during Elton's tour, which kicked off last September.

Taron currently stars as Sir Elton in the musical biopic Rocketman, which charts the singer's early life and career.
