Rocketman Taron Egerton's 'heart is in Aberystwyth'

Rocketman star Taron Egerton may have the world at his feet but a Welsh seaside town remains where his "heart is".

Egerton, who plays a young Elton John in the biopic, was aged 12 when he moved with his family from Anglesey to Aberystwyth.

Speaking at the UK premier of the film, he tells BBC Wales arts correspondent Huw Thomas how important his Welsh roots are to him.

"Aberystwyth will always be the centre of the universe for me," he said.
