Let It Shine creator Gary Barlow has revealed he has a role in the new Star Wars film, The Last Jedi

Gary Barlow has revealed he has a part in new Star Wars film The Last Jedi.

"I'm not a stormtrooper but I am in it," Gary told ITV's Lorraine on Monday.

He was tight-lipped about the nature of his role in The Last Jedi, continues the sci fi saga after The Force Awakens, featuring Rey (Daisy Ridley) and runaway stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega).

According to the BBC, Gary joked that, having revealed the news, he'll 'probably be out' of the film.

He added: "I think the Star Wars people are so strict about what information (is out there). So me saying that, I've probably just done myself out of a role!"

But any worried fans were quickly reassured by Lorraine's showbiz correspondent Dan Wootton, who confirmed ITV did check with Star Wars bosses before broadcasting the news.

The Last Jediwill also feature the late Carrie Fisher, who had finished filming before her death in December last year.
