Prince Harry and Meghan Markle said 'I do' in front of around 600 guests at their wedding in Windsor last year, and millions of people across the globe tuned in to watch them exchange their vows. The world wanted to know every last detail about their big day, from the sweet thing that Harry did for Meghan before the ceremony to the flowers to her beautiful dresses.

Their guests included royalty and A-listers alike, with famous faces including George and Amal Clooney, Elton John and the Beckhams. And they had one very popular celeb on the decks - Idris Elba.

According to reports, the reception and after party were extra exclusive and of the hundreds of ceremony guests only 200 were invited to the private reception at Frogmore House in Windsor Home Park.

Details about the 'knees up' have been kept secret from the public - well, that is until Idris decided to give us some clues about the music that the couple and their guests enjoyed dancing to on the night.

While on BBC Radio 1 Extra, Idris revealed that he had been given a set list by the Duchess.

'Respectfully I haven’t really been going on an about. Just ask them,' he started, but admitted: 'Meghan sent me a playlist with some bare tunes on it.

It has been rumoured that Harry and Meghan's first dance was to Whitney Houston's I Wanna Dance With Somebody, and Idris confirmed he did play it, saying: 'Did that go off? Mate a lot of tunes went off!'

When asked specifically which songs he played, Idris replied: 'There was some West Coast on it.'

He was pressed for more details, but refused to give much more away.

'I’m not gonna put their business out like that, that’s not fair,' he said. 'Ask Meghan and Harry.'

Over to you, guys...
