When asked how it all happened, Idris explained: “Harry and I, we’ve hung out a couple of times through his dad - his dad’s charity The Prince’s Trust helped me out as a young actor, so I do a lot of work with them.

“And Harry came to a couple of parties that I DJed and he was like, ‘Hey man, what are you doing on the date?’ and I was like, ‘Ah, nothing’. He goes, ‘Hmm, would you DJ at my wedding?’”

The actor, who was voted as People’s Sexiset Man Alive in 2018, goes on to describe his reaction, revealing he didn’t believe it at first but said afterwards, “it was great”.
