Sam Fender has discussed the possibility of a film being made about his life and revealed the actor he'd want to play him.

The Geordie singer-songwriter has experienced a meteoric rise to fame since releasing his debut album in 2017, so there's no reason his rags to riches story wouldn't get the attention of filmmakers.

Asked by The Sun who he'd want to play him in a film about his life, Fender revealed: "Who would I want, compared to who would actually play us, is probably very different.

"That’s who I would want to play me, but I’m not that cool or sexy."I’d want him playing me because he’s got that kind of dead look behind his eyes that I’ve got . . ."

The Spit Of You singer added: "In reality they’d probably get Michael Cera."
