Elba started his career as a DJ long before he found fame as an actor, and he got a chance to show his true skills on his Netflix show Turn Up Charlie, in which he played a seedy DJ trying to rebuild his music career , while working as a nanny for his famous best friend’s baby daughter.

Elba attended the royal wedding with his wife Sabrina, along with celebrity guests including George and Amal Clooney, Oprah Winfrey and Serena Williams.

During his guest appearance on Radio 1 Xtra, Elba also spoke to Top Boy star Ashley Walters, who asked him if he would accept a role in the upcoming third and final series of the Netflix show.

Elba replied: “Did I just get offered a part in Top Boy on the radio?!

“You know what, probably every actor who sees Top Boy thinks the same thing; “Boy I’d kill that, you know, I’d love to be there.”

“So Ash boy it’s very tempting and you’re my boy so if there was something for me to come in and just dip in and out I’d be honored to be a part of it.”

The full show is broadcast tonight on BBC Radio 1Xtra or BBC Radio 1 from 9pm to 11pm, or you can listen to the program afterwards on BBC Sounds. Idris Elba reveals the song Meghan wanted to play at the royal wedding
