Taron Egerton may be one of Hollywood's biggest stars, but he has not forgotten his Welsh roots.

The Welsh actor appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to promote his new film Robin Hood alongside Jamie Foxx and stunned the crowd when he belted out the famous Welsh hymn Calon Lân mid-interview.

When he was working on Robin Hood, the boy can absolutely sing.

I mean like no really listen - I try and hold that space and I heard this dude sing and I was like 'who is this in my lane?'

We were in a church and I think it was Croatia and he started singing something - what was that you were singing?

Taron joked he 'couldn't remember' what song it was and that he had lost his voice saying 'this was not on the agenda'.

The crowd then egged him on to give them a rendition.
