Veteran chart star Sir Tom Jones is to make his acting debut in a new drama.
The It's Not Unusual singer will star alongside Alison Steadman and Brenda Blethyn in the TV film, King Of The Teds.
Sir Tom - soon to be seen as a coach on BBC1's forthcoming talent search The Voice - will be seen in the Sky Arts drama in the spring.
The 71-year-old plays Ron, a former bottle factory worker who was once the top Teddy Boy in his area as a youth.
He and his wife Tina find their lives turned upside down when they once again meet a friend from their early days.
The Welsh singing star previously took a brief cameo role in Tim Burton's comedy Mars Attacks, playing himself.
The new film is part of a Sky Arts series called Playhouse Presents which also features one-off dramas with star names like Harry Shearer or David Tennant.
James Hunt, director of Sky Arts, said: "We are thrilled to have this phenomenal calibre of talent involved in such interesting and original films on the channel.
