Cape Town – Idris Elba has some good tips for those who may be on dating apps – and number 1 is taking a perfect selfie.

Chatting to Capitol FM radio show host, Will Manning, Idris offered tips on what he thinks will make people stand out on dating apps.

Offering advice to Will – who says he is on a dating app – Idris says: "Look you know, I tell you now. Any selfies you do make sure you go a nice bit of blue steel, you know what I mean? One eyebrow slightly upper than the other. Squint the eyes a little bit and a little bit of a smile - that always gets them going."

The Yardie director added that confidence is key.

"Confidence, like lots of confidence. You can always bring confidence back but you gotta just put it right up front you know what I mean?"

LISTEN TO THE ADVICE HERE:

In light of People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2018, we scrolled through Idris' Instagram to see if he takes his own advice.

While the 46-year-old's social media page mostly consists of selfie videos, we found four snaps that may not be a perfect blue steel but damn do they ooze confidence.
