Idris Elba has revealed that Meghan Markle sent him a playlist of specific tunes which he played at her wedding to Prince Harry last year.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1Xtra, the actor, 46, was quizzed about his coveted DJ-ing gig at the nuptials but played coy as he confessed: "Respectfully I haven't being going on about it a lot."

While Idris revealed he didn't want to give out too many details about his commitments at the Royal Wedding, he did happily give the name of one song that was requested by the Duchess of Sussex, the Daily Mail reports.

The Luther star confirmed that it was Meghan herself who sent him a list of tunes she wanted at her big day — one of which was Whitney Houston's I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

However when Idris was asked if there was any Dr. Dre, Tupac or Snoop played at the nuptials, Idris laughed as he replied: "Ask Harry and Meghan."

The royal couple exchanged vows at St George's Chapel, within the grounds of Windsor Castle, on May 19, 2018 and the ceremony was watched by millions. Celebrity guests included George Clooney and Robbie Williams.
