Elton has landed a role in his favourite British comedy, Absolutely Fabulous.
He will film the cameo apperance in July 2003 on a day off from his current European tour. And Elton has told producers that he is keen to sing a couple of his big hits when he appears alongside stars Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley.
Elton's spokesman said: "He's so excited about appearing on the show that he is going to film it on his day off when he should really be resting up and taking it easy."
Cheering from the sidelines will be his partner David Furnish, who recently watched the singer film another cameo for US sitcom Will and Grace. Elton played the Don of the gay Mafia.
