SIR Ian McKellen is to star in George Ezra’s new video.

Listen To The Man will premiere later this month and the singer even asked him along to his gig at Shepherds Bush Empire, before Sir Ian replied: “Is there any chance you can play closer to Limehouse?” The 21-year-old musician admitted that he was anxious about acting alongside the former Wigan resident. Talking to the Daily Mirror, George said: “It was nerve-racking trying to act beside him. I’m not an actor and he’s phenomenal.”

Meanwhile Sir Ian became the centre of a viral post as a video was posted of him telling pupils at a Bristol school: “If you don’t do your revision properly, do you know what will happen?... You. Shall. Not. Pass!”
